We took along a pumpkin to carve together, played games of noughts and crosses, shared stories and then to top things off before we left had a good go at smashing open a PiƱata!File 06-11-2017, 09 53 43.jpeg

We are looking forward to seeing them again when the children go to sing carols just before Christmas!

 

Get to the chopper! Surprise Helicopter Fun for the Preschool!

On an especially bright October afternoon we heard a loud sound near the nursery. After some investigating by the preschool and a short discussion they discovered that it happened to be a helicopter landing across the road from the nursery at Alexandra Playing field near the Mountbatten Centre.

We quickly gathered the preschool children to take them over to explore, the children were able to look all around the the helicopter and meet the rescue team which was very exciting and a rare opportunity for them.

Later when back at the nursery the children watched the helicopter take off and they all waved goodbye with big smiles on their faces.

Here at Carousel Nursery School we are always looking to take full advantage of spontaneous learning opportunities!
