Kidderminster Nursery Celebrates Armed Forces Day

Little Trinity Nursery in Kidderminster marked Armed Forces Day (Saturday 26th June) by making army figures, police hats and chatting about the different sections of the armed forces.

Armed Forces Day is a chance to show support for the men and women of the Armed Forces community from serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets, with communities across the country showing their support and taking part in a wide range of community activities and events.

Nursery manager Gaynor Carter said: “We decided to celebrate Armed Forces Day as it links really well with our theme on Superheroes, and it’s important to recognise the work all armed service men and women do.

“They learnt about each area of the armed forces which helped widen their knowledge on some of the people that help to protect our freedom. Discussing the different sections of the army, RAF, navy and royal marines also helped with their speaking and listening skills, knowledge about people and communities and their general understanding of the world.”

A week-long nursery activity which encouraged imagination and creative skills involved over 90 children making police hats and army figures and taking part in small group play using the resources in the ‘army tuff tray’ allowed them to enjoy a spot of roleplay.

Added Gaynor: “We have a number of serving parents and parents that have served in the past so it’s vital that we show them, our local families, our support.”
