How amazing do we all look in our Nursery Rhyme/ Poem costumes?

Thank you to all of you who came to read stories with us at our first share a story day! If you didn't make it this time don't worry - check out the next share a story date on your letter.

We have loved using the parachute this week! It has been great for strengthening our arm muscles.

We made the most of the bad weather by putting our overalls on and jumping in the muddy puddles!

We have been learning to make farms, zoos and dolls houses in our construction and small world area. We can then use them to create and act out stories!

We have been working with the children to develop their gross motor muscles and skills. Can you see how the activities below will help to strengthen our muscles?

We love PE on Fridays! We have been experimenting with different movements.
