Nursery visit Painshill Park
This Tuesday Nursery Class set off on their first trip of the year to Painshill Park in Cobham.
The children all love stories and I thought that a fairy tale walk at Painshill would spark their imagination. We were not disappointed! Our guide through the woods was called Adam. He immersed himself in the role of story teller by wearing a cape and a feathered cap. He led the children through the woods using language rich in rhyme, nonsense and tall tales. The children hung on to his every word. During the walk we searched for the three bears' house, hid from the wolf, built a house for baby bear, hugged a giant's tree and gathered ingredients for gingerbread men whilst being chased by a fox!
One of the children's favourite moments was acting out the tale of sleeping beauty in a beautiful castle by the lake. They were also rather fond of the wolf's cave and squealed with excitement when Obie the wolf chased after her friends. During the walk the children dressed up in simple outfits which helped to bring their favourite tales to life. Since our return we have begun to create our favourite characters in class, inspired by our happy day at Painshill Park.
