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!
