We had a great time at our Beach Party. Reception came and joined us. We played ‘pin the tail on the donkey’, made kites, built sandcastles, played in the water and danced. We even had ice creams and had a knobbly knee competition!

Thank you to everyone who came and contributed to the Nursery Fair. The Brownies who helped on the stalls were fantastic! Thank you so much to the Year 5’s and Year 6’s who offered to help with the facepaints and worked with some of the nursery children. We had a great time and raised over £300!

As part of our Great Outdoors topic we have been looking at mini-beasts. We read ‘The Very hungry Caterpillar’. Then we started to make a very long caterpillar and a very big butterfly! We tasted the fruit from the story and then we did some printing. We are going to put our caterpillar and butterf
