Flying Start @ Duchy Go On Scavenger Hunt In The Forest!

Despite the cold weather, the pre-schoolers and toddlers at Flying Start @ Duchy have been wrapping up warm and getting outside for some exciting adventures!

The pre-schoolers and toddlers went to the forest, to go on a scavenger hunt!

They were given special ‘scavenger hunt’ instructions to find different objects including: something straight, two leaves, something fuzzy, and something beautiful!

The children really enjoyed exploring and finding all the different objects!

The children then found a stick each to draw and write in the mud. Some of the older children wrote some letters, and drew pictures too!

They have also been using shaving foam to make a big snowman! All the children joined in using a range of tools to move the foam around… and had a lot of fun creating their masterpiece!

They’ve also been making collages, and using lots of glitter to make Christmas pictures!

Great work Helston!

Flying Start @ Marjon Explore Slimy Sensory!

The pre-school children at Flying Start @ Marjon have been enjoying exploring some slimy sensory play…

They had lots of cooked spaghetti in their big buckets, which was tinted grey and green with food dye, and they used tongs and their hands to move it around and explore it’s texture!

Then they decided to put lots of other objects in the spaghetti as well, and try and remove things one by one, using the tongs and great motor skills!

Flying Start @ Duchy Host Forest Stay & Play!

Flying Start @ Duchy Host Forest Stay & Play!

The toddlers and their parents had a great time in the Forest going on a Bear Hunt, inspired by their current theme!

The fun kicked off with reading the story at nursery with the children and their parents, and then they all headed off down to the forest with pictures in their hands that they had to look for!

The children looked high and low, in trees, in the leaves and behind logs and twigs to find their pictures… Once they had found their pictures they headed to the stream to splash and splosh just like in the story!

Then they went squelch, squelch in the mud where they had to be careful not to lose their wellies!

They ended the trip by walking through the forest looking for the bear in the cave! The children used their homemade binoculars and found the bear!

A big thank you to the toddler parents for joining in with the Stay & Play, and well done to the staff for putting on a great fun session!
