A visit to Eastwood Theatre

Children in the Willow room have been learning about theatres so some of the children visited Eastwood Theatre to find out what happens at a real theatre.

We spoke to each other through headsets,  this is how people communicate backstage.


We turned on lights,  and made sound effects

We spoke through microphones that changed our voices to sound like a monster and an alien!

We used shadow puppets to tell our own stories.

We had so much fun learning what happens backstage to help the actors tell the story.




Glenwood Gardens

Thank you to Sue Griffiths (Anthony’s gran) who diligently tends to our gardens one a regular basis and has recently brought a touch of springtime to our entrance. If you would like to help in any way- weeding, digging, planting flowers and vegetables- please speak with Mrs Buchan who leads the Gardening group. This is a group of parents and grandparents who lend a hand around the nursery grounds when they can. Anyone can get involved. No PVG is required as you are not working directly with the children.

Fairtrade Fortnight

We have been learning about Fairtrade goods. We have been thinking about where our food comes from and the importance of food producers and workers around the world being paid a fair wage. We held a Fairtrade shop in the nursery and raised £277.65 to support Rainbow Turtle Fairtrade shop. http://www.rainbowturtle.co.uk/

We visited our local Sainbury’s store and identified many Fairtrade goods including flowers, sugar, chocolate and bananas.

We made chocolate and banana muffins using our Fairtrade purchases. They smelled lovely and tasted yummy!
