With a Moo Moo Here And Quack Quack There……

What a ‘Moovelous ‘ Week for Meadows!

Spring is in the air!  We have been extra busy making the most of the glorious weather this week with plenty of water investigations and Yoga on the grass! Meadows have also been super imaginative with the small world farm animals and learning the names of their young. Ask your child to name some and see if they can remember.

On Thursday, all of Early Years enjoyed participating in a professional skipping session! We then came back to class and continued to build on our skipping skills. You could practice skipping at home too!
