Today we learnt about the celebration of Eid by listening to a story about Hassan and Aneesa. We dressed up in clothes like theirs and learnt to say Eid Mubarak, Happy Eid. We also had our hands painted with Mhendi. For tea we had an indian sharing platter, and at the end of the day took home an Eid money wallet filled with chocolate coins.
Our Royal Wedding!
Friday 18th May 2018
Today we celebrated the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle by holding our very own wedding! The congregation of our chapel watched as the friendship ceremony took place, and this was followed by the photographs. The children helped themselves to the buffet and toasted the couple after the cake had been cut. The "Night Do" took place in the afternoon with a disco and the all important first dance! This was followed by a pie and pea supper before the happy couple set off on their honeymoon! Hopefully this was a memorable day for our children to mark this auspicious occasion.

Easter Egg Hunt
29th March 2018
Today the Easter Bunny left lots of eggs in our garden! We had to collect as many was we could, and then we sorted them into sets of colour. We counted the number in each group and decided which had most and least. If we were really lucky and found a special rabbit or chicken egg, there was a little chocolate inside. Yummy!

The children had an excellent time on Disney Day, and really enjoyed dressing up as their favourite Disney character. The children used their imagination whilst playing with our Little Mermaid small world play area and Disney Princess castle, and developed their physical skills fishing for Nemo, making Mickey Mouse suncatchers and playing Disney themed games. Even the meals were Disney themed! At the end of the day all the children went to the gift shop to buy their own personalised Mickey biscuit. The perfect end to a perfect day!

Chinese New Year Celebrations
16th February 2018
Today we had a special visitor who taught us about Chinese New Year traditions. She brought us a "Fu" to put up in nursery and bring us good luck for the rest of the year. She showed us how to use chopsticks and read us a story about chopsticks the mouse. We looked at all the different animals from the Chinese zodiac, and played with Chinese dragons. At the end of the day we all took home a "Hung bao" filled with "lai see," a special red envelope filled with lucky money!

Elsa's and Anna's arrived in force on our Frozen Day along with lots of snowmen and Olaf! There were lots of Frozen themed activities, including exploring the properties of ice, making snowflake wands and necklaces, and a Frozen themed small world. The magic powers of all our Elsa's even made it snow! We had snowflake pasta for lunch with Olaf sandwiches for tea, and at the end of the day the children had an Olaf treat to take home. Everyone had a fantastic day!
