Reception Take To The Seas

Ahoy there shipmates!

Look at these fearsome pirates who have set sail in the Reception playground aboard their new wooden pirate ship. They have sailed the seven seas in search of adventure with their treasure maps and cutlasses! They certainly look a motley crew!

Reception children are thrilled to have a new addition to their lovely outdoor area. It’s a fabulous wooden pirate ship, complete with an anchor, a skull and cross bones flag and any stowaways may be forced to walk the plank! Crew Member Annabelle (4 years) told the staff, “I love it, it’s brilliant!”

This wonderful ship has really enhanced Mylnhurst’s Reception role play provision and is proving to be a real success with all the little pirates in the Early year’s Centre!

Nursery are ‘Bloomin’ Marvellous’

Nursery have been preparing their garden for Autumn.

The children tidied the planters and put all the weeds in the recycling bin. They also helped plant some bedding plants—Pansies and Cyclamen and buried some Spring bulbs—Crocus and Daffodils deep in the soil.

The children gave all the new plants a good drink with the watering cans and are looking forward to some beautiful flowers and a very colourful garden, a big thankyou to our green fingered parent Mrs Palmer-Young for all her help.IMG_1459

The Nursery, who currently have the theme of ‘Autumn’ across their curriculum,  have been learning all about the season by looking around the beautiful grounds with Reception for signs of Autumn. The children noticed how some trees were losing their leaves and how they were changing into different colours. They have also been printing with dry leaves and making rubbings from the bark on the trees.

They talked about the changes taking place in the weather and that we would soon need to wear warmer clothes. One of their favourite stories at the moment is about Percy the Park keeper.
