Nurseries News Round-Up – Week 50

Your weekly round-up of news from around our wonderful Golden Apples Family nurseries is here!


Bluebell, Eltisley

The Pre-Schoolers got stuck into their coronation activities, decorating crowns for the new king.

The children enjoyed crafting their crowns, using both pencils and glue to achieve the design they wanted.

A royal success!


The Anchor, Huntingdon

We celebrated St George's Day recently at the Anchor by making our own dragons and castle.

We also had a great time talking and learning about oral hygiene whilst playing with our resources.


The Appletree, Attleborough

This week, following on from our theme of Growing Life Cycles, Emma brought in some tadpoles from her pond.

The children watched the tadpoles and talked about how they grow legs and turn into frogs.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll watch them grow into frogs and explore other life cycles, too.

The children really enjoyed looking at their colours and counted how many tadpoles there were.

The Ark, Watton

The Ark is now taking bookings for September, with both funded and paid sessions offered at limited availability.

If you would like your child to attend our setting, which recently achieved a Good Rating from Ofsted, then please get in contact with us to secure your place.

But be quick – spaces are filling up fast!

Ofsted said: “The Ark staff provide a rich environment with a variety of meaningful learning opportunities.”

The Cornerstone, Martlesham

The Barn Owls used tweezers to pick up and transport counting elephants with ease.

They showed strong fine motor skill development in their coordination of small muscles in movement with their eyes, hands and fingers.


Head Start, Ramsey

We continued exploring minibeasts due to the children being so interested in the topic.

They enjoyed lots of creative activities and made some fantastic minibeasts of their own.

The children also explored our new outdoor construction bricks and enjoyed role playing as builders together.

Our babies enjoyed time in the garden, exploring sand and water.
