Flying Start @ Redruth Pre-School Make Their Own Fish Fingers!

The pre-school children at Flying Start @ Redruth have been continuing to explore different ways to eat healthily… and they decided to have a go at making their own fish fingers!!

They went on a trip to Tesco’s, where they looked at the fish counter, and the fishmonger spoke to them about catching the fish and how to cook them…

 

Once they had cooked and cooled, the children then enjoyed them as a healthy snack with a salad… mm, delicious!

Amazing healthy eating and cooking!

The pre-school children at Flying Start @ Redruth have been taking full advantage of the beautiful weather recently, and doing lots of outdoors play and learning in their garden!

They’ve been doing lots of activities focusing on letter and number recognition… their favourite is ‘walk the plank’ where they have to find the letter corresponding to their name in the water under the plank!

They even enjoyed snack time outside, to make the most of the lovely weather!

Flying Start @ Redruth Pre-School Explore Pirates & Treasure!

The pre-school children at Flying Start @ Redruth have been enjoying the warmer spring weather outside, and exploring their new theme this term all about the sea…

The children are particularly excited by pirates and hidden treasure under the sea! So they made their own pirate plank, and have been practising walking the plank in the garden!

 

They have been practising their balancing skills, and working together to help each other across.

They have also been exploring the treasure in their new pirate-themed sensory tray, looking at colour, and counting!
