All our existing Nursery children have been keen and eager to return to Nursery. We have made a few changes and introduced everyone to our pet snail. It is called Sparkle and if anyone would like to volunteer to snail sit on a weekend for us we would be very grateful.
It is very easy to look after and comes with instructions! He/ she loves cucumber and likes to have its shell gently brushed with a toothbrush.
We are gradually welcoming more and more lovely new children who are settling very well and are enjoying our new construction area and the mud kitchen!
Lots of parents came to join in with our Maths Workshop
We have been reading "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." Mummy Bear helped us to make some porridge. It was yummy!
