Our topic this week is Healthy Eating. Our 2 year olds did some bubble wrap printing fruits and vegetables, talking about what food they recognise and what they like to eat, the 3 and 4's did vegetable printing and they also did an activity looking at healthy and unhealthy food choices.

Wow! What a busy (and hot) week we've had! Our last week of the year and we've had a messy day, water play, teddy bear's picnic, and finally our leavers party!!

So much fun, we are sad to say goodbye to our leavers but so ready for all our adventures next year 😁

A huge thank you to all our parents for our lovely gifts, cards and kind words. Have a great summer and we'll see you all in September!

We loved giving the babies a bath in the garden this morning. We had soap in the hand wash pump which made it very bubbly!

Eid Mubarak to all our families celebrating this weekend.
