Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely and restful half term. This week the children have been learning about Chinese New Year. They have listened to stories, made dragon puppets and eaten and played with some Chinese noodles.
This week the children have been involved in lots of cooking activities. As part of our adult focused small group the children made their own sandwich; buttering the bread, chopping up the filling and cutting them into 4 squares.
We have also celebrated pancake day a little early (as it falls in the half term holidays) by mixing the batter together, frying it in a pan and cutting up pieces of banana to put on top – delicious!
This week the children have loved going exploring in the jungle and some of them have even turned into jungle animals!
Today the children also had a surprise visitor. A policeman came in to talk about his job with the Reception class and then very kindly offered to let the Nursery children sit in his police car!
He even lets us turn on the siren and blue flashing lights!
