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, 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!
