This Friday, at Monkey Puzzle Grange Road, we supported Children in Need.

Since our current theme is "Our parents are superheroes," our children (and some staff!) came to the nursery dressed as superheroes! The purpose of this was to collect donations for the charity and for all of us to have some fun dressing up, which we love!

We also ran a competition called "Name the Bear." The lucky winner was able to name the bear of the charity and also received the bear as a prize. The winner was one of our Preschool children who name the bear: "Bare"!

Thank you so much for helping us raising funds to support this amazing charity and for encourage your children to be generous and to support it too. Most of our children came this morning with some coins to put in the box and they were so eager to help!

This week our Toddlers have been on an outing in our neighbourhood!

Here at Monkey Puzzle Grange Road we are incredibly lucky to be placed on an area so close to different schools and colleges for the University of Cambridge. Our little explorers were spotting the traffic signals and talking about the different vehicles we were encountering, as well as pointing the houses and different buildings on our way. They also had the opportunity to stomp on crunchy leaves, collect some sticks and twigs for our garden play and had great encouragement from our teachers and the environment to use our speaking and communication skills.

Where will we go next?

Good afternoon, everyone!

This week our children are exploring how different liquids interact thanks to our "Magic & Fantasy" theme, so they made a magic potion! Our Preschool children took different types of liquids: water, milk, oil, foam, paint, etc.

They were able to choose their liquid, see them interact with the other liquids and talk about how they moved, mixed or repelled other liquids. They looked very enthusiastic mixing them and talking about the different interactions between them.

What other wonderful activities are waiting for us this week?
