Nursery

Hello to all the Nursery children and their parents,


We hope you are all well and keeping safe, we are missing you and hope to see some of you soon. In the meantime we are starting a new topic in Nursery all about minibeasts, little animals that we can see in our gardens. Each week we will look at a different minibeast, we are going to start by looking at worms. There are some activities on Seesaw for you to have a go at and look below to find links to things you can do and make. We hope you enjoy doing them.

 
Lots of love


Mrs. Crawford and Mrs. Vincent xxx
