Today the children enjoyed a visit to see the sheep at green ridge. They sang ba ba black sheep while walking along the sheep. The children were told to stand still numerous times to let the sheep walk past so they didn't startle them and they run off further up the field. The children then spotted some bulls in the field opposite and watched them walk away.
All last week the children helped to make and decorate some Halloween cakes. They went into town to collect three Halloween buckets and filled them up with sweets.
The children have loved seeing the police when they come and visit the nursery or even waving to the "nee naws" when they pass us when we are out in the community.
We hope Brighton Police enjoyed the cakes and we hope they have a great Halloween catching all the ghosts, ghauls and witches!
We would like to say a massive thank you to Tesco in Droveway Hove, for giving the children a box full of carrots from Fare Share Food Cloud. Today the children made Carrot Cake Cup Cakes.
The children described the textures of the ingredients when mixing "its wet and cold" One child said "eggs from chickens" when pointing to the eggs.
The children enjoyed measuring the ingredients out on the "scales" and then pouring it into the bowl. They learn't some new words "bi - carb - onate soda, Cin-na-mon" phonically.
We then used icing which the children then spread on the cakes and added the cake decoration.
On the walk to Maycroft Manor the children collected conkers and today they did conker printing. They used red, brown and orange paint
And that is a wrap for the class of 2017 at My First Friends Nursery.
These children have been with us for one to three years. They have all been an absolute delight to teach and look after. Every year it gets harder to say goodbye to the children.
They have made us laugh, cry and act silly around. They have made us value the world around differently. I'm sure the residents at Maycroft Manor will miss them.
We have loved hearing all the stories of what you and your family get up too.
September will be very strange for us as we won't have our little bunnies. But we are looking forward to creating memories with our new bunnies.
For now it's time for you all to fly the nest and to flourish.
It has been a pleasure teaching the children of 2017, it has been an amazing year seeing the children grow and develop their own identities. These children have changed us for the better. We have loved listening to all their stories and news.
Now it's time for them to fly the nest which is very upsetting they have been with us for a long time! Each and everyone of the children leaving will flourish in school. We will miss them dearly. There will be one last long cuddle and then they're off on a new adventure.
Good luck class of 2017!
It's time to shine 🌟
Thank you for our beautiful presents we look forward to handing the cards up and eating the chocolate
