Another Muddy Monday for the Nursery and Primary 1 children! Today, we welcomed some of the children who will be joining Primary 1 next session from other nurseries.The P1 Buddies did an excellent job looking after them. 🙂
Our challenge from Esmerelda the Woodland Elf, was to use her colour charts to find things in the woods that matched them exactly. We also had time to make up our own recipes in the Mud Kitchen.
