Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Valentine’s Day at Leighs!


Happy Friday all!

This week we’ve all been feeling the love here at Leigh’s Nurseries and have been super busy taking part in a variety of different activities all focused around Valentine’s Day! This theme has been an amazing follow up from our Mental Health Awareness Week as it’s allowed the children to explore and really express their feelings further. They really enjoyed talking about things that they love and that are special to them personally which was heart warming to hear.

We spent time making love potions, looking at books, listening to stories, creating paintings for loved ones and taking part in baking activities such as making yummy heart shaped treats! The science involved in creating the love potions helps the children develop vital life skills such as problem solving, observation and communication!

Family was also a huge focus for us this week. We spent time talking about our own families whilst also learning about each other’s. The children realised that everyone’s family structure is completely unique and special!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Lots of love as always,

From everyone here at Leigh’s Nurseries x
