The children at Flying Start @ Marjon have been really enjoying their forest school sessions…

The children made a giant birds nest using materials from the forest, which took lots of hard work!

And then they used their fine motor skills to thread food onto pipe cleaners for the birds to eat…

They used cheerios and pipe cleaners to create special bird food sticks, and hung them up!

They even made special cups of food too!

Flying Start @ Marjon Explore Pumpkin Activities For Halloween!

Flying Start @ Marjon Explore Pumpkin Activities For Halloween!

The pre-school children at Flying Start @ Marjon have all been having a go at carving out special mini pumpkins, with special adult supervision, for Halloween…

The children were completely fascinated by the seeds within the goop inside the pumpkins, and so they decided it was a great idea to plant the seeds! The children independently planted the seeds into their very own made up gardens using plastic cups.

Once they had completely emptied out the pumpkins, then then did a science experiment with them! They put bicarbonate of soda and vinegar together and the children watched the pumpkins fizzle!!

Fizzling, sizzling, halloween fun!
