Halloween is coming and we’ve got lots planned at Play 2 Learn!

The children will take part in a number of fun activities this week:

  • Chef June will get everyone into the Halloween mood by making spooky sweet potato wedges to accompany lunch.

  • The children will put on their chef’s hats and make their very own puff-pastry spiders as part of their tea.

  • The children will also learn how to carve a pumpkin - an opportunity to get creative and fine-tune their motor skills!

  • There will also be a whole host of creative arts and crafts activities taking place throughout the nursery.

New music wall

We have created a magical music wall in our main garden. Our music wall consists of everyday objects such as pots and pans. This allows the children to explore how sounds can be changed using different items. Our music wall provides a sensory experience that exemplifies how creative expression can come alive in different ways.

Firebrigade visit


The local fire service paid us a little visit and taught us all about fire safety. The children learned all about a firefighter’s job and were able to sit inside a fire engine. They even had the opportunity to see the flashing blue lights in action!

The session was followed up with a discussion about other people who help in society. It was great to see the children engaged in this activity and come up with examples such as doctors, teachers and police officers.
