Monkey Puzzle takes a trip to outer space…

Wilmslow day nursery learn about spaceWe are so lucky at Monkey Puzzle Wilmslow to have parents with such fascinating hobbies and careers.

Today we’ve had Sammy’s dad come into the preschool to give a talk about space, a hobby he is passionate about.

Wilmslow nursery are learning about spaceThe children all made planets out of paper plates and we learnt where they sit in the solar system by getting the children to hold the plates in order.

We then learnt all about gravity by jumping up and down. A very big ‘Thank You’ to Sammy’s Dad for coming in and talking to the children.

We are very pleased to announce we have started running Spanish lessons for all our preschool children. These are run by a local company called Little Amigos. The children learn to speak Spanish with the help of two puppets called Mono (monkey) and Leon (Lion) The current theme is weather so the children have been learning how to say La Lluvia (rain), El sol (sun), La nieve (snow) and El viento (wind).  We’ve also been learning a song – Habia una vez un avion (there was once an aeroplane).  The picture with arms in the air is of them singing Up (Subia) and Down (Bajaba).

A visit from Charlie’s Dad…

The Police paid a call to Monkey Puzzle Wilmslow, but it’s all ok! Our friendly Policeman was actually Charlie’s Dad. We have been focusing on Safety Awareness recently and the children were taught all about Stranger Danger and when to call 999. Everyone got to have a look a a real walkie-talkie and try on the fluorescent Police jacket. Much fun was had by all and a very huge thank you to Charlie’s Dad for making his visit so enjoyable.
