Yesterday the nursery children enjoyed a trip in the minibus to Thorntonloch Beach. First they had to each build 10 sandcastles as they had been sponsored by their friends and family to carry out this challenge. With the money raised from this sponsored event, we hope to buy some new toys and other resources for the nursery.
After all that digging, they then enjoyed a healthy snack before heading along the beach in search of interesting items to create transient art pictures.
There was then time for some races along the sand – running races, walking backwards races, running sideways races and running with a partner races. All that running certainly helped to warm them up!
Before we headed back to Nursery, the children enjoyed jumping on their sandcastles to flatten them out and leave the beach just as they had found it! Thank you to all the parents and siblings who joined us. We were so glad the sun shined, and the hailstones from the previous day stayed away!
We will let you know how much we raised once the sponsor money has all been returned.
