World Book Day!

We had a lovely day in Nursery today celebrating World Book Day! The children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite character and reading plenty of stories. We went to look at the books at the book fair and shared a brand new story from the shelves. We then went to our school library and chose a book about a slug that wanted to be a snail. Our pet snail 'Minnie' also joined us for the snail story. Thank you to all of the parents/guardians that sent their children in, in the most amazing costumes, we really appreciate all of the effort that you put in!   Click on the picture of the book to see some pictures of our super day.

The past few weeks have been very exciting in Nursery. We have made fruit flan and lemon cake. The children are very good at washing their hands, using the equipment safely and tasting the end project.  Click on the chef's hat to see some pictures of your children cooking and baking!

Biscuit Baking!

Today, the children in Nursery enjoyed baking some biscuits. We made them into star shapes to fit in with our space theme over the past two weeks. The children weighed out the ingredients, stirred the mixture, made some icing and sprinkled them with hundreds and thousands. They were delicious. Well done everyone!
