St Nicolas Playgroup Advent Trail 3rd to 24th December 2020

To spread some festive cheer this advent, we have had a number of houses in Taplow and Burnham join us to decorate their windows for an Advent trail to raise funds for St Nicolas Playgroup.

Tickets are £2.50 per child and each child will receive a prize after finding the clues hidden in each of the windows. Suitable for all ages from 1-101! All proceeds go to our charity run Playgroup that has run for 44 years in the heart of Taplow.

Thank you!

A huge thankyou to Sharan at @Baked by Endsor for her incredibly generous contribution of these delicious Autumn biscuits for the parents and children at Playgroup. As we haven’t been able to hold a number of fundraising events last term, the generosity of this local business helped us to raise £120 for Playgroup, a fantastic total and such a tasty half term treat for the children.

Forest School – 28th September 2020

The children made a beautiful Autumn mandala to celebrate our Indian themed session at forest school today. We made a delicious Indian feast using our senses we explored a colourful warming array of exotic spices and chopped up a variety of locally harvested vegetables for our vegan vegetable curry with an Indian chai warm milk drink, coconut cinnamon rice pudding and Indian spiced popcorn.

Forest School – 14th September 2020

We had a wonderful sunny start to our Forest School term with Mimi from Wild Wood Rangers which started with a Stickman hunt! We familiarised the children with the site, climbed trees, made out own stick men, whittled some sticks and did mark making and rubbings.

It wouldn’t be forest school without our campfire cooked snacks and lunch of roast veg, halloumi and tofu, baked potatoes, and finished off with a secretly baked vegan chocolate cake in the Dutch oven to celebrate a birthday, complete with whittled stick candles
