Flying Start @ Satash Go On A Trip To Forest School!
Flying Start @ Saltash went on an exciting trip to visit the forest school at Flying Start @ Duchy!
The children and staff went in to the Flying Start BONGO, and were driven to see their friends at Flying Start @ Duchy.
They all went down to the forest, where they did some exploring and then ate some snack…
And then they made special little homes for animals using the twigs and leaves they gathered!
Great fun & exploring by all!

 Flying Start @ Saltash Learn About Shapes & Decorate Biscuits! 
The holiday club and pre-school children at Flying Start @ Saltash have been looking at shapes, colours, and patterns recently!
They have been making patterns and pictures using the ‘tap tap art’ materials… look at that amazing concentration!
 
And then they decorated some biscuits with different coloured icing and different shaped sprinkles!
That sounds like an especially delicious way to explore and learn about shapes!!

Flying Start @ Saltash Babies Bake Buns in Cooking Club!

The baby department at Flying Start @ Saltash have been working together to make some yummy treats in cooking club!

They all had a go adding in the ingredients, and stirring it all up with a big wooden spoon… this was great practice for their motor skills!

They also got to decorate them once they had cooled, using icing and a spoon… and of course then   take them home to eat! Yum!

Flying Start @ Saltash Express Themselves!

Flying Start @ Saltash Get Creative… on a BIG scale!

The children have been expressing their artistic skills both inside and outside, getting messy, exploring textures and enjoying the free exploration!

Using brushes, pencils, pens and even…

Their feet!

Encouraging lots of open ended creative play is a good way to see what the children are interested in and encouraging them to explore new sensations!

Flying Start @ Saltash Are Keeping Healthy In The Hot Weather!

Flying Start @ Saltash Cool Off!

The children have been drinking lots of icy cold water, practicing pouring it themselves.

And playing in water, inside and outside to cool down after lots of sunshine!

They have also been enjoying lots of healthy fruit snacks and talking about how to keep healthy and sun safe… lets hope the sun lasts long enough for a nice summer!
