Good afternoon everyone,

Today children were learning all about animals on the African continent as part of our work around “Handa’s Surprise”. Children also retold the story using the puppets and other story props and had the opportunity to draw and paint some of the fruits from the story in a still life lesson. They were able to handle the real fruits and arrange them for their drawing or painting.

There were also opportunities to look at real pots from Africa and make their own pinch pots out of clay.

In the garden children were working on a large scale with paint, playing in the mud kitchen, using space hoppers and stilts and enjoying the diggers in the large sand pit.

Don’t forget if you have signed up for Healthy Families it is the first session tomorrow. We look forward to welcoming you into nursery for this 3 week course.

Have a lovely evening.
