We very much enjoyed learning the story of The Gingerbread Man. The children demonstrated lots of curiosity, focus and independence while baking their gingerbread biscuits.
We talked about what we could see, on our journey to Catford Library. It was great to have so many books to choose from. We loved the story session. Thank you to Lewisham’s library service for our new library cards.

Look at the fascinating bugs found amongst the weeds in our garden! This week in Nursery we have found lots of shield bugs and an amazingly hairy caterpillar. We are learning to be gentle to minibeasts and put them back where we found them.
