A Salute to the NHS from Children 1st @ Main Street
On a significant day when the nation is asked to come together to applaud the NHS staff who are working hard throughout the coronavirus outbreak, the children have been focusing on the fantastic work our NHS do daily and especially what they are doing now.
The children began by becoming nurses and doctors themselves which they found very exciting! They enjoyed using a range of dressing up clothes and props such as stethoscopes, thermometers and so on, as well as making their own head bands. The children have enjoyed discussing the various occupations which form the NHS and learning about the important roles played by the staff in these departments.
Afterwards, the children decided to colour and paint various pictures linked to the NHS, including uniforms, ambulances and doctors. We then made a huge sign which we placed outside to show our gratitude for all the hard work the NHS are doing for us. At Main Street, as with all Children 1st nurseries, we are pleased to be providing day care for the children of these important front line workers.
Our staff will be taking part in the ‘NHS Clap for Carers’ which takes place at 8 p.m. tonight. This will be our chance to show the NHS staff how much we appreciate their efforts. Landmarks such as Lincoln Cathedral and the Royal Albert Hall, will be lit in blue during the national salute which should be a great sight when we watch coverage on the news.
