Flying Start Walk Around The World In……How Many Days?

Flying Start Are Going To Walk Around The World!It takes 20 million steps and we want to help our staff become more active so we are taking on the challenge… but the question is… how long will it take our staff teams, and how many times can we go around our world?! Your nursery team will be recording their steps, and children and parents will be encouraged in their own challenge! So how about parking your car a little further away and walking some extra steps to nursery, going out for a walk at the weekend, or even doing a teeth cleaning march! Lets all get fit this February and Walk Around The World!

Flying Start Get Festive!

Flying Start Get Festive!

Flying Start, Camborne have made decorations at nursery and with the residents at St Martins Residential Home. To put on our tree which has been displayed at Camborne Church at the Annual Christmas Tree Festival.

All of our nurseries have enjoyed wonderful food and party time together!

Flying Start, Helston been very lucky as some very kind parents have come in and read a story. The nursery gathered in the preschool room and sat beautifully whilst listening to a story about green eggs and ham, and another about stinky sprouts.  

This week the children have been extremely excited to see Santa. They showed him their performance for Christmas singing Christmas carols and signing the Christmas story. Then they sat patiently and waited to receive their present. They were very excited to open the present.

We have also explored dough and using it to make some Christmas decorations, worn festive jumpers together and made a wonderful ‘box tree’ to support our plastic free campaign.

We’ve had such wonderful times together this month, thank you all for sharing and participating this festive season!

Flying Start Nurseries Rhyme This Week!!

Flying Start Nurseries Rhyme This Week!!

We’ve been singing lots of nursery rhymes that have lots of actions. We are able to pick out of our nursery rhyme bags. We also created a twinkle twinkle little star sensory tray which the children have loved exploring.

We made ‘Incy Wincy Spider’, a nice web to dangle from whilst singing.

We also filled a tubes with different sensory such as rice, spaghetti and lentils, and then decorated their instruments with paint. Then they joined in with nursery rhymes, experimenting with their instruments to see what different sounds they could make. The toddlers have also created a song bag for Baa Baa Black Sheep, and have enjoyed using it and singing along.

We have also been singing and acting out the song Miss Polly had a dolly, we used the phone to call for a Doctor

They also had a great time singing autumnal songs such as Autumn leaves are falling down and Throw your leaves in the air.
