Lansdowne have been working hard on a special Jubilee Bournemouth in Bloom project. We have been using our imagination & creating lots of different models such as a swan, a double-decker London bus, Big Ben & even the Queen’s horse! Veronica has been busy helping the children plant a beautiful flower display with red, white & blue flowers. Our display was judged by Bournemouth in Bloom on Thursday 26th of May & we will find out how well we’ve done on Friday 17th June, when we
Our Jubilee celebrations have started a little early as our preschool class were kindly invited to Winton Library to enjoy some stories & crafts. We listened to two stories, one about a make-believe queen & one about our real Queen, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Afterwards, we made The Queen’s golden carriage out of gold paper plates with paper wheels & windows. We even added a Union Jack flag & a picture of The Queen waving from the window! Thank you so much Winton Library
Preschool have been learning all about Dinosaurs & their unstable prehistoric world, so we decided to make our very own volcano! We made the structure of our volcano out of a bottle & an egg crate & used papier-mâché to make its jagged, rocky surface. We talked about the hot lava that comes spewing out of volcanoes & how they can be very dangerous. When discussing what we'd do if we were ever near to an erupting volcano, one of our friends suggested, "just RUN" & we all agree
Meet our dedicated kitchen team! The wonderful Angie is our head chef of both Lansdowne & Talbot Woods & along side her are her trusty kitchen assistants: Antonella & Julia. Our lovely ladies provide healthy, balanced, nutritious meals daily & cater to any dietary requirements, allergies & preferences our children may have. We are excited to introduce our new summer menu, including sweet & sour chicken with noodles. Thank you, kitchen team, for all your hard work!
Pre-School were in for the biggest treat when Christina kindly brought in her two beautiful bunnies – meet Bubble & Squeak! We learnt that there are many different species of rabbit: some with pointy ears & some with floppy ones & that they have different fur types. We also learnt about the different foods rabbits like to eat. Bubble & Squeak were so cute & felt very soft, like velvet. Thank you very much Christina for sharing your bunnies with us, we learnt so much & had so
Is there anything better than a trip to the beach on a sunny day? 123s had a wonderful time building sandcastles, talking about which animals live in the sea & munching a mini picnic! On the way back to nursery, we walked through Bournemouth Gardens & tried to spot some fish in the little canal. Then, we visited the birds in the aviary & talked about their different colours & sizes. To top off our amazing afternoon, as if we hadn’t had enough fun, we even got to ride the bus!
Inspired by our current topic of ‘jungle animals', Preschool has been learning all about camouflage! We created a beautiful camouflage collage using plants we found in the garden & talked about their different textures, colours & sizes. We also discussed how plants might help animals blend into their surroundings. Later, we made biscuits in honour of the kings & queens of camouflage – Tigers! We took turns to mix all the different ingredients together & carefully squeezed & g
The lovely Taylor joined us in 2018 & completed her level two in childcare in 2019. Unfortunately, due to Covid, Taylor has been unable to start her level 3 until now. "Working with children has always been a passion of mine. I love to see the role I have in a child’s development, watching them learn & grow in confidence & ability." Good luck Taylor, we wish you every success & will support you every step of the way!
