27th April 2017 saw the judging of Nannas infamous Spring has Sprung competition across both nurseries! The judges: Aimee Willmot, 3-5's pre-school Room Leader at Turner Road; Lucy Bethell, 2-3's Room Leader and Deputy Manager; Michael Wiseman, Forest School Leader and Financial Manager, all had a tough job deciding the winner!
The theme for this years competition was 'Renovation' and staff used their creative skills to re-vamp all areas of core provision and planting areas!
Parents contributed to both sites entries with cress egg heads, donated plants and planters, wellies and photo evidence from their own Spring walks and activities!
Stand-out activities and displays included new garden golden rules, bunting, large abacus, homemade bird feeders and a new tyre swing!
Entries were marked against a criteria which included: links to the EYFS, links to the local community, celebrating diversity and the WOW factor!
The overall winners were our Hawthorn Avenue site who added another trophy to their collection!
Many congratulations to everyone for all their hard work, your gardens are now beautiful again and will be well used over the next few months!
