We have had a great first week in nursery, here are some of the highlights. It’s been lots of fun.

 

The children have been reading the story of Owl Babies this week. As a part of the story, the children visited the Nature Garden to collect sticks, twigs and leaves to make nests for the owls. The children really enjoyed themselves, here are some highlights from their visit.

 

In Butterfly Class, we have been talking about our families. The children then decided to draw some pictures and representations of their household. Here are some of their creations.

 

The children really enjoy visiting the Nature Garden. This week we went on a Minibeast Hunt!
