A new academic year!

We are very happy to have welcomed children back to Little Chestnuts this September. As well as welcoming back children who had previously attended the pre-school we have also had a number of new starters who have settled in brilliantly. We have all really enjoyed the start of the term and had lots of fun!

Stem Week

During Stem week we got to see some chicks hatch and they even came to visit Little Chestnuts and we got to hold them.  We also experimented with colour mixing with oil and water, making a volcano and making our own boats to see of they would sink or float. 

World Book Day

On World book day we dressed up as characters from our favourite book and read our favourite stories.  Using some of the money raised from the pancake flip we bought some new magnifying bug pots and went on a minibeast hunt in Chestnut Wood. 


This term we have been learning about recycling and what happens to our waste and how to recycle it. We take it in turns to take out the compost bin and empty the crisp recycling.  

At the end of the term we we lucky enough to have a visit from the Easter bunny and went on an eater egg hunt. 

Fun at Little Chestnuts!

We have been having lots of fun in Little Chestnuts so far this half term. We have said “Hello” to new children and welcomed back old friends. The children have been exploring the water world, enjoying messy sensory play and playing with the new outdoor resources.

Autumn Days

As usual at Little Chestnuts the children have enjoyed fun filled days, along with cooking, painting, reading, building, role play and playing they also found a bear on our bear hunt, enjoyed lot’s of outdoor play and reading in our outdoor den!
