Week beginning 30th March 2020

This weeks ideas


This week we thought it would be great to support the children's understanding of the amazing people helping us in our community as well as use this as an opportunity to say thank you to some of those that are helping the community in this difficult time. So this week please find a list of ideas that will help prompt conversation, story, song and craft while saying a big thank you. We also wanted to recognise that some people may be particularly vulnerable and therefore added a few suggestions of ways we could work together to share a smile. We hope you all are well and can't wait to hear all about your adventures at home when we return to nursery.
