Flying Start @ Redruth Make Pizza!

The children have been making bread for snack for a long time so we decided to make our own pizza dough to make Pizza for our snack.

The bread maker kneaded the dough and heated it to help it rise. The children then helped to shape it and fill it with some tasty toppings.

It was just too yummy to resist and the children ate it before we had time to snap a picture.

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!

We have been lucky enough to be selected to participate in the Cornwall Music Service Project.

The children have been learning all about different aspects of music, linking especially to our language and emotional development.

This week our Music teacher Emily brought in her Saxophone for the children to listen to and explore. The children really enjoyed the variety of sounds it created and loved how shiny it was.

They even attempted to recreate some of the sounds with their voices.

Next week Emily will be coming in with her Saxophone group to play a bit of a concert with the children.
