There appeared to be lots of parents with ‘something in the eyes’ when High Bank Day Nursery held a graduation ceremony for the children who are leaving to start school in September.
Staged at Barton Village Hall, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as the children proudly donned gowns and mortarboards for the event. They sang and danced to songs from The Greatest Showman and Moana, before receiving their graduation certificates.
Children at High Bank Day Nursery now also have a farm shop to help them develop their learning.
Part of the pre-school room has been transformed into a farm shop complete with fruit and vegetables, scales, till and pretend money.
The children are using the shop to learn everything from the difference between fruit and vegetables and which parts of the world they come from, through to how to weigh produce, set prices and give and receive change.
