We have been reading the story Handa's Surprise by Eileen Browne. We have been talking about Kenya the African country where Handa lives and we have learnt about the animals who live there, the foods they eat and the fruits that grow there. We have learnt how people who live in Africa have a very different way of life to us.

We acted out the story and below you can see some of the pictures from the story.


We have been working on our drumming skills in out outdoor area! We are very good! We like to experiment and try out different materials to drum with! Why don't you have a listen!


We had a lovely time seeing and holding the chicks that Year 5 looked after. They asked us to think of some names for one of the chicks and then vote for the one we liked the best. We named the chick Flower! We liked it a lot!

Having fun at Nursery!
