Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

CHIL­DREN at Bright Hori­zons Tyther­ing­ton Day Nurs­ery and Preschool in Mac­cles­field have been busy pick­ing up new skills and show­ing friends and fam­ily what they do at nurs­ery.

The chil­dren iden­ti­fied dif­fer­ent shaped items and were taught how to nail them to wood, us­ing a child-friendly set of ham­mer and nails as part of a project to hone their fine mo­tor skills, be­fore wel­com­ing friends and fam­ily to a fun day.

Nurs­ery man­ager Lor­raine Roberts said: “The chil­dren sat and talked about safety with (the health and safety co­or­di­na­tor Candy Floss) sup­port­ing them. They were aware of how to pro­tect their lit­tle fingers and had a great time en­joy­ing the re­spon­si­bil­ity in this ac­tiv­ity.”

She added: “We were de­lighted so many of the chil­dren’s fam­i­lies came out to take part in the fun day and hope they all en­joyed their day.”

Par­ents, fam­ily mem­bers and friends joined the young­sters at a lo­cal park where they all took part in a range of ac­tiv­i­ties.

The chil­dren en­joyed play­ing on the swings, climb­ing and rolling down the grassy banks, as well as mak­ing large bub­bles and chas­ing them to pop.
