Fire Pit Vegetable Pizza

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018
After reading ‘Olivers Vegetables’ we discussed what we could make if we had lots of fresh vegetables. We are very lucky to have such a fabulous orchard so we already knew where some of the vegetables came from just like in Olivers grandpa’s garden. We decided on vegetable pizza and vegetable (carrot) soup. Please see floor book in nursery for more comments.
Instead of buying pizzas we put our fire pit to good use. After preparing selecting our toppings we used the heat from the flames to melt the cheese toppings. Margaret and Miss Kelly used our safety fire booklet and explained to us how to keep ourselves and each other safe by being responsible around the fire.
We each took turns carefully placing our pizza on the grill and watched closely to see the cheese begin to melt.
At Bathgate Early Years Centre we promote experiences with a risk benefit, ’embrace risk in a positive sense rather than limiting valuable experience’
All activities are risk assessed prior to being carried out, a task we complete alongside the children. We believe this is a valuable lesson for every child as this provides the early skills and abilities for a child to risk asses their own play and challenges throughout life.
Have any ideas of what else we could cook on our fire pit? Please comment below or tweet any suggestion to @wlbeyc

Parent Craft Group

Monday, October 8th, 2018

We would like to invite all parents/carers to join our Parent Craft Group, starting on Wednesday 24th October 2018.

The purpose of the craft group is to demonstrate new skills and to use expertise as we prepare goods for our Christmas Fair, which takes place at the end of November. It is a relaxing way to be creative, chat and have some fun with other parents/carers in our Nursery.

The group will run during the morning and afternoon session on a Wednesday, for 5 weeks, taking us right up to the date of the Fair.

Time: 9.00am-11.00am- 1.00 pm-3.00pm.

If you are interested in coming along and supporting your child, and the work which goes on in the Nursery, please speak to Mrs Todd.

Everyone is welcome!

Music & Loose Parts

At Bathgate Early Years Centre we encourage the children to play and explore open ended and loose part resources. (Versatile items and materials which can become anything a child envisions)

This week the children helped to revamp the music area and had a great idea of how they could really make it their own, Please have a look at our Sway below to see…
