In Nursery we wanted to make the children aware of Remembrance Day, so we made a poppy wreath by painting bun cases and drawing around our hands. Outside we built our own cenotaph and put our coats on to go and observe a minutes silence whilst looking at pictures of soldiers .
The children where so excited to tell us about their Bonfire night experiences and this developed into a talk about keeping safe . We discussed how to contact the emergency services by dialing 999 and the children were keen to act this out. We soon developed a High View firefighting team.
At High View Nursery we want to build upon the learning that has taken place in the home. We aim to provide children with a rich variety of challenging play activities and other experiences in a stimulating environment.
