Flying Start @ Camborne Create Natural Object Pictures!

Flying Start @ Camborne Create Natural Object Pictures!

The pre-school department at Flying Start @ Camborne have been all doing a take-home activity this half term… the challenge was to collect a small bag of natural items from the woods, the beach, the garden, or even on the walk to nursery and back, to bring in!

The children then used these natural objects they had collected to make some beautiful pictures to display at nursery!

 

A huge thank you to all of the parents and families that have collected items with their child and sent them into nursery… the children were very excited to show & tell what they had found, and then turn it into art!

 

Flying Start @ Camborne Mark Mental Health Awareness Week!

Flying Start @ Camborne Mark Mental Health Awareness Week!

As it was Mental Health Awareness Week across the country, Flying Start @ Camborne decided to do some activities to mark this week with their pre-school children!

 

The children looked at themselves in the mirror and focuses on different expressions, and talked about whether they were feeling happy or sad…

Then they drew a self-portrait of their faces, and added expressions to show how they might be feeling. They also talked about what might make them happy or sad, and used the emotion pebbles to identify a wider range of feelings!

The staff then took their work and made it all into a brilliant awareness display on the pre-school room door!

 

Flying Start @ Camborne Visit Local Residential Home!

Flying Start @ Camborne Visit Local Residential Home!
The pre-school children at Flying Start @ Camborne enjoyed their weekly visit to their local residential home!
 
On this visit, the children painted pictures with the residents!
The residents were delighted to see the children as always, and some even decided to pick up a paintbrush themselves…
 
One pre-schooler helped one of the residents to paint a picture by holding the paper for them and adding paint to the paintbrush for them…
…how lovely to see such thoughtful teamwork!
