Grace Dieu Nursery celebrated its third birthday in style with a ‘Once upon a fairy tale’ themed party!
The School’s Arts Hall was transformed into a magical fairytale land with props from different fairy tales, signposts to different fairy tales and bunting galore! There was a variety of fairy tale themed activities laid on for the children to enjoy too, from face painting to decorating gingerbread men, and making jewelled crowns to hunting for fairies.
Many of the staff and children dressed up for the occasion – in their favourite fairy tale characters. There were characters from Alice in Wonderland, Tinkerbell made an appearance, and there were lots of princesses, dragons and knights too!
Everyone also enjoyed a delicious birthday tea – which finished with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday and the cutting and eating of our birthday cake!
“It was wonderful to be able to celebrate our third birthday with all of our current Nursery children, families and staff,” says Headmistress Margaret Kewell. “Whilst the Nursery has achieved so much since it opened – in particular being rated ‘Outstanding’ by both Ofsted and the ISI – what’s most lovely is that some of our children have been at the Nursery since it opened three years ago – so this is the third birthday party they’ve been to!”
