Pre-Prep were considering what they would do if they could fly. Read Jack’s heart-melting ‘If I had wings, I would dream..’ We think Jack’s lovely Grandma will have an Extra Big Hug - hopefully very soon – & Santa will be pleased to have Jack’s help. Well done Jack! @DitchamPark https://t.co/T9K1hewEy6

At Dragonflies we enjoy making craft activities and getting messy! We often use a range of resources such a junk modelling, paint and glue and stick different materials together - we particularly like using sparkly gems and sequins! We enjoy using our imaginations to create wonderful masterpieces. Why not try something a little bit different? Have a go at making a sock puppet using an old pair of socks! You could even put on a puppet show afterwards! #DitchamConnect #NoOrdinaryNursery #Sooty #Gordon https://www.ditchampark.com/nursery/ditcham-dragonflies/

Each morning in Dragonflies we talk about what the weather is that day and we discuss in a small group what activities you could do in that weather. For example, when it is raining we love jumping in muddy puddles! When it is sunny we like taking our snack outdoors for a picnic. When it's windy we have talked about making kites and trying to fly them! Today's activity is to have a go at making a kite! What materials might you use? Do you think you could fly it in today's weather? #DitchamConnect #NoOrdinaryNursery #16Acres #LetsGoFlyAKite https://www.ditchampark.com/nursery/ditcham-dragonflies/

Performer. Ditcham has given me the confidence to develop as a performer – singing AC/DC at our Arts Festival was a bit different from what I usually sing in the cathedral choir; I loved it.
