We enjoyed our family day out at Southend-on-Sea and the sun shone for the second year running! Children explored the sea, shoreline, shared food and drinks and thoroughly enjoyed playing in the fountains.
The children and parents made some wonderful comments, some of which are below:
"Great fun, well organised and lovely for all the children to experience a day out together. A wonderful way to finish the year!"
"I loved the crabs and the fountain."
"I want to go again."
"It was a lovely trip. We will definitely go there again!"
"A very enjoyable time. We loved it at Southend. Thank you, we have made new friends."
"A wonderful day by the sea with our friends."
"I loved falling down in the sea!"
We like any excuse for our community to come together to celebrate. Families and friends of the Nursery enjoyed sharing and celebrating the individual creations our children have been involved in producing this term.
Many children worked for a sustained period, returning to and embellishing their creations, adapting and sharing them with their friends and staff. Exhibits included bags designed, resourced and made by the children, capes, jewellery, clay imprints, observational drawings, weaving, woodwork and art created using the computers.
Families stayed after school to enjoy drinks and fruit and to talk and play together.
At Rachel Keeling we work hard to ensure children's individual style and ideas are fostered and valued. This individuality is evident in their wonderful work.
