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!!

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!

The children learnt about fruit and vegetables, fish and meat… meeting some fresh fish on their journey and looking at the different sizes, colours and talking about the fish they had eaten!

Then because the children have a ‘bakery’ role play at nursery they went to Tesco’s BIG bakery! They met the bakers, looked at a huge variety of what they bake and had a go themselves with some dough.

Finally Tesco’s VERY kindly gave the children some new toys to take back to nursery!

Not only had the children learnt so much from the lovely Tesco Staff they were thrilled with their unexpected gifts!

Thankyou Tesco Extra @ Pool for being so kind, generous and knowledgeable!
