There were ‘swashboggling’ celebrations at Westwood Day Nursery in Coventry as delighted children dressed up as beloved storybook characters to mark the annual Roald Dahl Day.
Celebrated each year on the iconic author’s birthday, children and colleagues from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Westwood Way showcased their creativity with costumes from his famous works, including Matilda, The Enormous Crocodile and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, as well as taking part in a series of themed activities.
From creating their very own marvellous medicine in the garden outside using buckets and spoons, to making Roald Dahl inspired arts and crafts and reading the popular tales, there were exciting learning opportunities at every turn for the group of young book lovers.
Westwood Day Nursery Manager, Carly Ward explained;
“We had a brilliant day immersing ourselves in the magical world of Roald Dahl and celebrating all that the occasion had to offer. We hope to nurture a life-long love of reading in our children and these activities are also brilliant for capturing the imagination, building literary confidence and developing communication skills.”
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.
