The children were eager to learn how to take care of someone who is poorly of hurt. They learnt about the equipment and how to apply bandages. They also learnt who to put someone in the recovery position. What an amazing day!

Garden Development

We are developing our garden and have made some changes already. The children love our new Mud Kitchen and the big Sports Zone.

Family Fun at Easter

Our families joined us to make Easter Bonnets, have fun and watch the parade. Such a lovely day.

World Music Workshop

The children had a wonderful time exploring the different sounds from a wide variety of instruments.

Fun Outdoors

The children just love being outdoors. They don't mind what the weather is like, they just wrap up and get exploring.

We love risk taking and challenging ourselves too.

Star Dance!

This week in Hall Time we learnt a special Star Dance.  We were shooting stars, pointy stars, twirly stars and jumping stars!  We practiced our movements then put them all together to music to create our beautiful dance.

We are also getting really good at taking our shoes and socks off and putting them back on again all by ourselves.  We are so independent!

We have been helping the new children settle in.  We have been kind, caring and friendly and have been helping the teachers teach our new friends all about Redwood Nursery.
