In group times, we have been busy counting spots and finding the matching numerals to unlock the vegetables. We have created our own Supertato characters as well as practicing our cutting skills.

We have been very busy in Nursery this week and have loved learning about Paw Patrol and the emergency services. We have been lucky enough to have a visit from the police who let us look and play in their police car. We have been busy investigating our own crime scene in Nursery, we found a footprint, glasses and a sticker from Mrs Smith. We looked carefully at these clues to work out who the suspects could be. We have also been taking fingerprints in the messy play area, using tweezers to save people from the fires and using bottles in the water tray to put the fires out.
