Parent’s show and tell
We invite parents to participate in show and tell when we are discussing a particular topic. These include talking about a particular talent/subject, playing a music instrument, reading a story in another language, baking foods… the list is endless.
Play and stay
Throughout the year we have play and stay weeks. We invite parents to come in for an hour and play with us.
Each Year we host sports day for the children to participate in. There are various stations that the children make their way around throughout the day. Some of the events include egg and spoon, sack race and many more. We hold out at a local park and ask parents to come and watch and join in on the fun. There is also a parent’s race and as expected it gets a little competitive but in a friendly way of course.
We want to celebrate the children achievements and give them a big send off before starting ‘big school’ and that’s why we have a big graduation party. The children perform a dance to their parents which they have been rehearsing in the nursery. The children then get dressed up in their cap and gowns and are awarded a certificate by their teacher which outlines what they will be reminded for. It’s a great a few hours and the children and parents really enjoy this celebration.
For over 15 years we have been holding annual Christmas parties. Children, families and staff come along to celebrate the festive season. We have an children’s entertainer, buffet and father Christmas also makes an appearance. The children also perform some of the songs they have been learning in the nursery. It’s a fantastic party and everyone has a great day mixing with each other.
Winter Wonderland at the Woods
Festive Family favourite for the children to show their parents what they have been getting up to on forest school. The children and the parents work together to help find the presents. We all then sit around the camp fire, singing festive songs, sipping on hot chocolate and eating toasted marsh mellows.
