This Week in Downend (W/C 15th February 2021)

This week in Downend, Nursery have been making their own snow with shredded paper, they found hidden items in the snow and enjoying throwing the snow in the air and feeling it shower back down on them. The children have been getting creative with arts and crafts this week, using lollypop sticks to create different marks. 

In Kindergarten this week the children celebrated pancake day, they enjoyed some yummy pancakes with delicious toppings. The children got busy exploring some ‘nature dough’ which they made with natural resources that they had collected themselves. Outside they have been using the chalk to make marks and have been playing different ball games. 


This week in Pre-School the children also celebrated Pancake Day, Shrove Tuesday! The children read a book about a Cheeky Fox who ate all of the pancakes, then carefully decorated their own pancakes using fruits and sauces. The children got creative with their toppings and made funny faces – they were very yummy!  Pre-School also spent some time practising some Yoga this week and learnt lots of different poses.
