Pizza Time

This morning the children were given all the ingredients they needed to make their own little pizza for snack.

First we put on the yummy pizza sauce.

R is very careful making sure all her dough is covered
Loads of sauce!!

Next comes the cheese

S sprinkles a little at a time.
We’ll just add lots at the one time!

Helen took our pizzas away to put them in the oven. We have to wait till they were cooked before we could enjoy them. They weren’t too hot.

Ooh mine is yummy! Look mine has loads of cheese!

It’s a thumbs up from L and a clean plate!!

Have fun making your own pizzas at home. You can add any toppings you like.

Merry Christmas to all

There were some very excited children in the centre today. As it was cold and frosty we thought it would be a good idea to light the fire and sing some Christmas songs around it, while drinking delicious hot chocolate.
We hope all the Cart Mill family have a wonderful and safe festive period.
Merry Christmas, and a very happy New Year from us all.
Thank you to all for the most generous gifts you have handed in for the staff, it is very much appreciated.

Christmas Fun

It’s Christmas!
The boys and girls in the home room have been enjoying the festive activities at nursery.

We decorated some biscuits with icing sugar and sprinkles, but first we washed our hands…..

We chose different colours of icing to decorate our own biscuits and took them home.



We then heard a bell and a ho ho ho, Santa was in our garden. He sprinkled some magic dust on the stage and then there was presents for all the boys and girls!

Merry Christmas !

Has Spring Sprung?

It was positively springlike in the forest today. There were birds twittering in the trees and horses galloping in the field while the children explored in the sun. We found new trees to climb, developing our gross motor skills as well as developing resilience – “can we be brave and go higher?”
Snack was spent sitting in the sun, socialising with our friends and talking about what else we would like to do at the forest. We have been really lucky with the weather so far, long may it continue.

Pancake Tuesday!

Today the toddlers were celebrating Pancake Tuesday! They were all very involved in helping to make our egg free pancakes! After hand washing the children helped to weigh and mix the ingredients in a bowl. They all had a turn at stirring the mixture. We then all went to the family room to see the mixture turn into pancakes. The children beautifully sang ‘Pop a Little Pancake’ whilst waiting. The pancakes smelled yummy!! Once back in the playroom the children crushed strawberries to make jam and spread it on their own pancake. We had banana on top too! What a tasty snack! The toddlers gave a big thumbs up to eating fresh pancakes!
