Curling, skiing, skating and snowboarding are just some of the adrenaline-fuelled disciplines that have thrilled viewers across the globe during the Winter Olympics.

Joining the rest of the world in keeping up to date with all the triumphs of Sochi 2014 inspired youngsters at Acorn Childcare’s nursery Acorn at The Willows, in Fishermead.

They avidly followed the progress of our competitors with daily conversations.

From Lizzy Yarnold’s gold in the skeleton and the bronze medal won by Jenny Jones in the snowboard slopestyle to the Bronze medal success of Team GB’s women curlers and the tense men’s final - Acorn’s children were fascinated.

Their interest prompted a visit to the Snozone to watch some skiing. “Team Acorn” continued with the Olympic theme at nursery this week with more winter and sport inspired activities.
