Latest News from Les Enfants
Out and about in the Community
Les Enfants will again be supporting Northsounds Charity ‘Mission Christmas’ this year. The charity is raising money and gifts to give to children aged 0-18 years who are less fortunate than ourselves in the hope to make Christmas a brighter and happier one. If anyone would like to make a donation of new toys there is a box situated in the main reception where these gifts can be deposited, the toys are not to be wrapped. We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you in advance for helping us support this appeal it is very much appreciated.
Learning is fun!
Some of the younger children enjoyed a trip to Aden Country Park where they had fun finding fairy houses hiding amongst the trees, they had a play in the park and a picnic with their packed lunches. They also explored all the fallen leaves from the trees and had fun kicking and throwing them.
We also had a trip to Playtown in Inverurie, the children got to dress up as firefighters, policeman, robbers, vets and builders. The children used their imagination skills well and took part in lots of roleplay together.
A recent interest in our Apres building has been vets. We have learned about different animals and how to look after them. The children have been taking part in various activities about vets / animals and have really enjoyed this. We changed our role play area and made it in to a vet’s corner and put a cage in and filled it with hay, food and water and the children picked some cuddly toys to put in as our pets. We also added a first aid box that included bandages and the children worked well as a team to pretend to bandage up the animals that were injured or sick.
One of our parents kindly came in to have a chat with us about her job, she is a vet who specialises in horses. She brought in many tools to show us and explained to us in detail what they are used for. She also had horse’s teeth and a horse shoe to show us, which was very exciting!
