Snapdragons Nursery went to the farm E-I-E-I-O…

What an exciting time Preschool had at Lawrence Weston Community farm! The children enjoyed identifying the different animals and watching the chickens get fed.

Room on the Broom

Following on from our story of the month, the children got messy creating witches hats and enjoyed acting out the characters in the story.

Busy Babes

Look how busy the babies have been making wonderful creations. They made spooky treats for Halloween and got messy exploring paint.


Halloween at Horfield

We had lots of frightful fun at our Halloween party. The children played Music-Ghoul statues, made creepy crawlies and explored the insides of a pumpkin.

Christmas Nativity

This year the children in Pre-School will be singing songs from ‘Prickly Hay’ for their Christmas Nativity on Thursday 6th December. Pre-School would love it if you could come along and see them on the day. Tickets are limited to two per family unfortunately, but we will be recording the whole thing so you can order copies of the show to share with your family and friends at Christmas time. You will receive an invitation which will need to be completed and returned to the office by the end of November.

National Elf Service Day

We will be taking part in National Elf day to help raise money for Bristol hospital’s. Taking part is really simple, all you need to do is donate £1 to dress your child up as an Elf on Friday 14th December. Posters will be going up around the nursery closer to the date as a little reminder!

We will also be doing a big raffle for the day, prizes include so far; a meal for two at The Wellington and The Urban Standard and a hair and beauty voucher. If you have anything that you can donate for National Elf day we would really appreciate your help.
