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!

 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 @ Cornwall College’s Practice Letters In Lots Of Ways!

Flying Start @ Cornwall College’s preschool children practice letter formation any way possible!

Using their fingers in damp sand, paint brushes in water, pencils, pens, sticks in the mud …. the possibilities are endless!

This week they have been practicing using buttons, to carefully line up and form letters from their names.

Lots of practice helps!

Flying Start @ Camborne Have A Visit From A Police Officer!

Flying Start @ Camborne Have A Visit From A Police Officer!
Flying Start @ Camborne have been very lucky to have visits from people who help us, and this week they had a visit from a police officer called Jenny!
Jenny told the pre-school children all about her job, and how the police help us in many different ways!
She also brought her road safety box and the children all had a chance to be the lollipop person who made sure the other children didn’t cross until it was safe… look at them practising on their zebra crossing!
Jenny was very impressed with the pre-school children as they listened very well and asked her important questions… one of their questions was “why does your jacket have so many pockets?” and she carefully showed the children all the different things she has to carry, which make her jacket quite heavy!
The children were also really curious about her hat – and luckily for them, she had bought a few for the children to try on!
Thank you so much to the     local PCO Jenny, who took the time to come to the nursery and share all about her important job with the children – they had a fantastic time & learned lots!

Flying Start @ Cornwall College Go Shopping at a Farm Shop!

Flying Start @ Cornwall College Go Shopping at a Farm Shop!
The pre-school department at Cornwall College were very excited to visit a farm shop because they have their own farm shop role-play in the pre-school department!!
   IMG_20170307_112041 (1)
The children looked at all of the different fruit and vegetables that they could see in the shop and talked about which ones grow in England… they talked all about how the bananas and pineapples need hot sunny weather which means that they definitely aren’t from England!

Then they decided to look for the vegetables which were still muddy because they would have come straight from the soil… and they found potatoes, carrots and turnips like this!

The children chose to buy six fresh eggs from the shop… they gave the lady the money, and took them back to nursery to have some scrambled egg for a snack… yum!
