Grow Wild Project – Everton Park – Monday 11th April 2016

Yesterday, children in Year 3 had the chance to sow wildflower seeds in Everton Park, as part of the Grow Wild project. This was extremely successful last year and the wildflowers made our local park look beautiful! Richard from the wildflower centre explained how to sow the seeds and as Year 3 have been looking at plants in science, they were able to explain how the seeds will eventually grow into beautiful flowers. The children are excited about visiting the flowers in the coming months to look at how the seeds change and develop.

Community Police Officers visit Early Years – 5th February 2016

Last week, the community police officers came to visit foundation stage, before their visit we talked about how people help in the community and the role of the emergency services in keeping us safe.
Reception generated and wrote questions to ask the police and nursery found out some very important information in case of an emergency!
The police officers were very kind and they even let us try on their uniforms, we found out that they wore them so we could recognise them in the street or a busy place. The most exciting thing of all was being able to drive the police van, we sounded the alarm and some of us got locked in the back!
Since the visit we have created adventures and rescue missions using paw patrol characters as our stimulus, the children have loved role playing reading and writing about the police, fire service and ambulance paramedics. Nursery also made cards to say thank you! Thank you for your visit!
