Eid 2014

The children had a wonderful time celebrating Eid Ul Fitr 2014, they shared Indian snacks and did some lovely indian dancing. They were told stories about the muslim culture by Nazia our pre school nursery practitioner and they had lots of fun, learning about fasting and the reasons we celebrate Eid.


Chinese New Year and more….

2014 has started with a bang for all the children at Crossley Mill!

 We have all been extremely busy this January. The Bobkins children have been learning to feed themselves and sharing their skills at climbing on the frame. The Lilliputs have been having lots of fun dressing up in fancy dress outfits going on shopping sprees in the ‘shops’ and the Gullivers have been learning all about Africa from watching dancing on the computer to reacting these skills with the big drums.

The children then all came together at the end of the month to recognise Chinese New Year enjoying some delicious food and looking at the marvellous creations they made for the display board.

Take a look at some of the photographs and see how much fun we have had at nursery in the month of January

Halloween 2013


Check out our gallery of the children enjoying Halloween at nursery.

The children came in their spookiest costumes and enjoyed taking part in Halloween activities. These included pumpkin scraping, making spiders, ghosts and exploring the goo and seeds from inside our pumpkins.

The day was finished off with the entire nursery joining together for a slimy feast of pumpkin stew, jelly and custard.
