What a lovely time the children all had this Easter, in particular a wonderful event in the beautiful gardens at the Church of the Holy Rood in Edwalton. The sun shone brightly while the children hunted for eggs before heading inside for a drink and well earned Easter cake!
The craft station was next, where the children created some cute looking chicks and rabbit headbands. The children let their imaginations run wild and came up with some amazing, creative designs.
The children who had created an Easter bonnet ready for the event showcased their creations and the winners received prizes. The day ended with the popular egg and spoon race and the children were excited to take home their chocolate eggs!
There was even more Easter fun when the children were invited to take part in a little community event where they had the opportunity to do crafts, hunt eggs and pot their own spider plants! An absolutely lovely morning was had by all the children and the ladies running the event were very impressed with their beautiful manners!
Every year, 21st March is the Persian New Year. As part of the tradition of the Persian New Year, grains and pulses are grown at home in March. This year the pre-school children got involved and are growing wheat and lentils. As the green is grown without using soil, it’s a very good way to show the children how a grain, bean (or seed) germinates. The children observed step by step how the wheat and lentils were kept moist and how they started to make roots and sprouted. We talked about what plants need to grow & the children loved seeing the grains changing and growing.
