Bristol nursery children celebrate Bristol International Balloon Fiesta
Date: 22 Aug 2019
Children at Bright Horizons Bristol Day Nursery and Preschool have been celebrating Bristol International Balloon Fiesta by taking part in a number of hot air balloon activities.
The children have been talking about the city and the fiesta, noticing patterns and shapes on photos of balloons and creating their own representations in the mark making area. There will also be discussions on how they work using simple Growing Scientist experiments.
“Bristol International Balloon Fiesta takes place every year at Ashton Court which the nursery has beautiful views of,” said Deputy Nursery Manager Lucy Cragg. “Many of our children attend the fiesta at some point and is a big event for the city of Bristol. As the nursery opened, the last few balloons were taking off but there were many in the sky.”
