Pancakes and book characters

Friday 04 March 2022

This week has been very busy at nursery as we have celebrated two important events: Shrove Tuesday and World Book Day. We began by talking about Shrove Tuesday and why it is important in the Christian calendar, and we also read ‘Mr Wolf’s Pancakes’ to inspire our learning. The children made their own pretend pancakes and took part in some pancake-inspired activities. Whilst decorating some real pancakes, we discussed our favourite toppings and thought about the healthy choices we could make. On Thursday, lots of children (and staff) dressed up to celebrate World Book Day. The children really enjoyed creating their own books and reading their stories to the rest of the class.

We have started to look closely at the number three and will continue to explore it next week. Perhaps you could ask your child if they can spot the number three in the environment (registration plates, buses and house numbers are good places to start looking for numerals). As Spring is on its way, we will also be looking at ‘growing’ over the next couple of weeks and will be planting our own beans and seeds.
