Space week proves soaring success at Carlinghow Hall Nursery
Children at Carlinghow Hall Nursery in Batley have taken part in their annual space week -which proved to be out of this world.
Carlinghow Hall - one of the six-strong Happy Jays group of private nurseries across Yorkshire – taught children all about the solar system.
Nursery staff created a dedicated ‘space corner’ packed with intergalactic fun for children to enjoy whilst learning names of planets, moon rocks and astronauts.
Margaret Pollard, nursery manager, said: “The idea for space week was first suggested by one of our out of school children a few years ago - and has now become an annual activity.
“It offers a wonderful opportunity to excite the children about science and technology as well as giving them their own astronaut passport to allow them to leave earth and begin their own space journey!”
Established in 1968, Carlinghow Hall provides a variety of special weeks and days for children to enjoy including Fruity Fridays, child safety week and flag day.
Tony Gernon, MD of Happy Jays, commented: “Across all our nurseries we are proud to provide an excellent standard of care and learning whilst ensuring the children enjoy their time with us. Initiatives such as space week enable our team to engage with the children about a particular topic which the children can share with their families at home.”
Happy Jays provides Ofsted registered nursery and childcare in Batley, Harrogate, Boroughbridge, York and Scarborough.
