Children from Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard have been showcasing their creativity with a series of exciting activities and festivities at the setting.
In anticipation for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in the summer, children from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Mentmore Road were delighted to create their very own pudding to enter into the Fortnum and Mason competition, which encourages members of the public to design a dessert for Her Majesty.
Complete with raspberries and blueberries in the design of a Union Jack, pre-schoolers made a honey and tea flavoured tray bake, before watching a video about Queen Elizabeth and learning more about how the fruits they used were grown.
Inspired by National Storytelling Week and the new Chinese ‘Year of the Tiger’, children were also thrilled as Cedars Day Nursery Quality Manager, Jessica Price, transformed herself into a tiger for the occasion and re-enacted the beloved story of ‘The Tiger who Came for Tea’ for her captivated audience to enjoy.
Cedars Day Nursery Quality Manager, Jessica Price explained;
“The children had a brilliant time designing their Platinum Pudding and it was wonderful for them to see their ideas come to life, whilst also learning basic mathematical messages through weighing ingredients and baking. It was also great to role model an awe and wonder storytelling experience in such an engaging way.”
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
