On the last week of term the nursery took a few trips to London! 🎡🦖
The children thoroughly enjoyed travelling by the train and some of them even went on the underground tube!
We loved seeing the famous landmarks around us and seeing the super tall buildings.
We visited the shreks adventure amusement park, the natural history museum and a favourite of the children’s was the bridge we went over at the embankment as the children could see Big Ben, London eye, speed boats and were especially excited to see the military helicopters fly over us and see the police boats on watch.

At little stars we love getting messy🎨⭐️

Messy play allows children to build, imagine, experience, investigate, explore, create, observe, predict and use their senses.
Best of all its heaps of fun! 💫

Tea party in our preschool 🫖
The children love sharing different experiences with each other...taking turns, using good manners at the table and participating in convosations with our peers.
They independently made honey sandwiches, chose their own ingredients when tipping and pouring the water and milk for their own tea and and learning about letting it brew. Some children also tried to eat the lemon. Apparently it tasted delicious 🤤

Preschool activities 🌻💚
Our children love being in the outdoors and watering our mud garden area to see the plants/flowers grow... so we thought we would plant out own sunflowers to take home and observe 🔍.
The children noticed a change in them today after a few days of being watered and being in the sun... ☀️🚿 they were very excited.
This covered lots of different areas to help the children develop in their learning.. literacy, communication and language, understanding the world, expressive arts and design and physical.

Farm day 👩‍🌾🥕🐴.
The children absolutely loved their suprise on our nursery feild,
Wonder the goat
Misty the Shetland pony
Dellboy the donkey
Ermuntrude the cow
Lambaretta the lamb
Rabbits, guinea pigs, piglet, Chick's, ducks and geese.
The children petted the animals, fed them grass, took the lamb for a walk and some of the baby's even got to have a little ride on the pony.
What a great experience to add to our little stars journey.

Meet our snail 'Owly' that we found in our garden today 🐌.

The children picked some leafs, grass and flowers from the garden to create their own little home for Owly. They also used the interactive I-pad to search about snails and what they eat.... we chopped up some of our vegetables for him💚.
