Today we have celebrated the London Marathon at our day nursery! Every age group took part in a 26 metre run around our garden. The older children sat and cheered on all our younger children at Harlow nursery, it was lovely to watch! Once the children had run through the finish line, they received a medal, a banana and a water bottle, which they sat and enjoyed in our reading area! The children then received a certificate for taking part!
"It was lovely to see all the children enjoying taking part. They ran as fast as they could and were all very happy when they reached the finish line. It built on the children's team work, by chanting their friends as they ran. As well as their physical development of running and avoiding obsacles. We have really enjoyed celebrating the London Marathon today!" ~ Hayley Yeta - Pre-school room manager and EYFS co-ordinatior.
