A Day At The Beach.

What a fabulous day the nursery children have had at Aberavon beach today. They brought their Mammies, Daddies and Grandmas along to join in the fun. They all had a busy day. They made sandcastles, played football, splashed in the sea and in the water park, played on the swings, and some even had chips in a bucket! Delicious!

Building Bridges.

The nursery children used their problem solving skills today to build bridges across the construction area. They worked as a team, using planks of wood and blocks to construct bridges that they were able to walk across. They then used their balancing skills to walk across their constructions. Gwaith da nursery! Think we have some future engineers!

Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!

As part of our topic, ‘Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside!’  we decided to bring the beach to Pontlliw. The children built sandcastles, made ice cream sundaes, drank ice cool slushies and even paddled. What a fabulous morning!

Come Fly With me!

The nursery children have been having fun in their new outdoor airport. They wrote tickets, checked the flight times and even checked in their luggage. They also had time to play in the water, on the bikes and scooters, and dig in the sand. They even found a giant spider!

Bug Hunt!

The nursery and reception children have been on a bug hunt. They went into the nature area to see what creatures they could find. Don’t worry, they were very gentle with the bugs and put them back where they found them.
