The bunny made an easter egg hunt for us. We searched for eggs in the woodland area- they were yummy!

Then we walked home in the rain and got very wet! When we got back to nursery we had a nice warm milk to warm us up.

Dental Health

This week we have been learning the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children have been acting out the story on our garden bridge and have been busy builders making bridges of their own.

On Tuesday we received a letter from the troll, telling us he was so grumpy because he had a toothache. This lead to lots of discussion on how we can care for our teeth. thumbnail_IMG_3303

We made the troll some minty toothpaste!

Nursery Rhymes

Singing nursery rhymes can help children to learn and understand different speech sounds needed for talking and reading.

This term we will be learning some traditional songs and rhymes. We will display them in the corridor so that you can continue the songs at home.

We are currently learning the songs-  ‘Polly put the Kettle on’ and ‘I’m a little Teapot.’

 

We changed the song by adding our own names.
