We had the pleasure of borrowing a fire box which contained a lot of different items that connects to fire safety. The children indulged themselves into the special clothing and hats as well as using pictures, which they could colour in and enjoyed listening to stories. They had so much fun learning all about the importance of firefighters and what their job entailed.
The weather lately has been so unpredictable, so we are now making the most of the sunshine. The children at Bunting enjoyed planting some seeds, bulbs, and plants into our flower beds. They helped staff to dig holes, plant seeds and cover them up. The children will help care for the plants by watering regularly and checking them for bugs. They are very keen to see them grow and flower and the children understood that the plants will need sunshine and rain to help them grow healthy. They also understood that we need food, drinks and sunshine to help us stay healthy as well.
The children were role playing in the outdoor area and they used wheels to create an ice cream van made out of the wooden play house. The children offered options of different flavours including strawberry, chocolate and vanilla. Some of them also talked about having a cold ice cream whilst they were at the beach. Everyone had an enjoyable time, and the children made the most of the sunshine.
We wanted to remind Parents that we will be closed to all Term Time Only children (this includes all children at Bunting Pre-School and Polkadot Bridgetown) week commencing 26th October for Half Term. We will be open again from Monday 2nd November.

Last week we explored our imagination by making camp fires using twigs and sticks. The children enjoyed digging up mud to make muddy pies for lunch and cooking pretend food and drink in the kitchen. We sat on the logs at the end of the session to talk about what activities we enjoyed while being in forest school.
We have been making shamrock pictures by printing with peppers to celebrate St. Patricks Day.

‘The children had great fun exploring Chinese food using their taste and smell senses. As part of our Chinese New Year celebrations we decorated the nursery with lanterns and read a story explaining the importance of them. We used chopsticks to paint pictures and explored different textures by messy play with noodles.’
