Today our younger children (18mth-2yrs) have been getting very MESSY in the shaving foam, exploring the texture and making marks in it. Our Faeries (2-3yrs) room have made their own healthy pizza which they then shared at tea time yum yum! Our Pre School children (3-4yrs) have been watching our tadpoles very carefully today as some of them now have legs although they still swim very fast as we try to count them!

Only two more days until our Hillcrest Gala open day and the weather is looking good (so far.) We are very excited and hope that everyone will come along for an afternoon of fun.

Hillcrest Gala Open day Sat 29 June 2013 from 1-4pm.

Hooray the sun has come back today and our children have been making the most of it in our outdoor areas. Our younger children have been getting very messy exploring the texture of shaving foam and some of our older children have been mark making in it. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the weather will stay nice for our Gala day on Sat but if not we will still have a great time. The nursery is looking brillant with different coloured bunting hung every where. So spread the news – every one is welcome to attend Hillcrest Nursery School on Sat 29 June from 1pm till 4pm for fun and games.

We look forward to seeing you all there :-]

Today at nursery we have been very busy drawing pictures of our faces on the chalk boards and completing really hard jigsaws (we are really clever.) We have had a great time in the garden and the wet weather made us puddles to jump in. Our children have been threading using the beads to make different coloured necklaces and we are preparing and getting very excited for our Hillcrest Gala day.

Wed 12 June 2013.

Today our Pre School children have been playing games and singing in the garden. Hide and seek was our favourite and it helped us to develop our counting skills. There are lots of places to hide and this made the game tricky but our children enjoy a challange! We used the large threading boards and using raffia and created lots of different coloured patterns (photo added to Facebook.)

Our Faeries room children (2-3 yrs) have been busy today creating Fathers Day cards and getting very messy exploring the sticky jelly and as usual lots of outdoor play in the garden. Our Elves room children (18mth-2yrs) have been sitting together in the book area to listen to short stories and sing songs. They have also been exploring the new tent area enjoying hiding and playing peek a boo games.

The Pixies room children (babies) have had new friends visiting today who will be starting the nursery soon and they have all enjoyed the outdoor area and the played with the dolly’s and home corner items.

We have had an exciting day at nursery playing in the sandpit and water and testing our balance on the climbing frames. Our children have started to make very special cards for our daddys (its a secret so no peeping daddys!)

We have been planning our first Hillcrest Gala open day on the 29 June 2013 it will be free entry and everyone is welcome to come along. There will be games with prizes to be won, a DJ so bring along your dancing shoes and of course refreshements to relax with. We hope it will be a sunny day as there will be lots to do in the garden but also if it rains dont worry as we will use the nursery rooms.

Other games and fun  on the day will include:

  • Hook a duck (to win a prize)
  • Coconut shy (can you win a prize?)
  • Buzz wire challange (can you race a friend to get to the end of the wire without setting off the buzzer?)
  • Guess the name of the teddy (winner get the teddy)
