In the woods day 4

Steve and Amy came to visit today. They told traditional tales around the fire that Steve taught us how to light. Followed by learning to drum. We cooked ourselves sausages, baked potatoes and beans and for pudding we had bananas and chocolate. Delicious.

Nursery walking through the jungle.

Walking through the jungle, What do you see? Can you hear a noise? What do you see? A fox looking for his tea. A Gruffalo looking for his tea. I wonder if they enjoyed the children’s mud soup.

Making nests

In nursery we listened to the birds singing. In spring the birds make nests for their eggs. We made nests for our birds.
