There has been an official opening ceremony taking place in our Nursery outdoor area today!!

Mr Livingstone, very kindly and skilfully, made a mud kitchen for the children and, I'm sure you'll agree,

it's the most magnificent mud kitchen imaginable!! It's almost too gorgeous to get dirty!

A huge thank you to Mr L for all his time and hard work

This week we have been reading the stories of Supertato and Evil Pea Rules. The children then found clues that Evil Pea was in the class and he appeared and kidnapped a Super Potato. The children then made their own superhero masks to help Supertato catch Evil Pea. He had squashed some peas and left a message on one of the children's name boards. We also made vegetable soup in the water tray with the vegetables from the story.
