Your weekly round-up of news from around our wonderful Golden Apples Family nurseries is here!
ALL ABOUT ME!
The Beacon, Rendlesham
The Toddlers’ topic for the week is ‘All About Me’, so they’ve been studying their faces closely using mirrors and then attempting to draw themselves.
At carpet time they discussed their interests and what they like to do when at nursery. They then drew their favourite toys to go on their Interests Board.
The Toddlers also learnt all about their bodies, having fun pointing to all the different parts on themselves and then adding the labels to the correct places on the body.
The Babies had fun exploring their animal-themed tray!
They practised all the various sounds they thought they would make and made marks using the animals’ feet.
The Anchor, Huntingdon
More changes to this week’s menu – the Pre-School made Gruffalo Crumble today which was delicious.
On Friday, we will be having tuna pasta for lunch instead of sausage, mashed potatoes and beans.
The Appletree, Attleborough

They also showed good group play whilst participating in a matching dinosaurs game.
GARDEN OF EATING!
Head Start, Ramsey
We’re so proud of our gorgeous British summer garden here at Head Start.
We have tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, herbs and strawberries.
The children are learning how to plant seeds, watch them grow, wait patiently for them to mature and then EAT them!
