We have enjoyed watching our caterpillars change into butterflies. Today we set our butterflies free.

Teddy Bears Picnic

Sport's Day

Eid Celebration Day

Today we had an Eid celebration day. We wore our party clothes, made peppermint creams, ate some delicious food and played some party games. We took Eid cards home for our family. Some very kind mummies came into nursery and painted special Mendhi patterns on our hands. 

Multicultural and Expressive Arts Theme Week 

This week we have enjoyed a special theme week. We based our learning and activities around Africa and in particular the story of 'Handa's Hen'. We made clay pots like the ones Handa and her friend Ayeyo find lizards. We also moved to African music and made our own musical shakers. We had the opportunity to explore large African drums, and used different parts of our hands and different parts of the drum to create different sounds. On Friday we came to school in our pajamas and shared our favourite books.
