Nursery Children Visit Shop to Buy Snack


   Children took snack money to the shop and selected snack for the week.  Back at school they prepared it.

The children had fun playing in the snow,  building with it and making it melt. They worked as a team on a snowman.          

We love being outside, even when it's cold. The mud kitchen was open too!

Trip on the Bus to the Library


On Friday 17 of November, Reception had a fun trip into Egremont using the bus.  We visited the local library.  Whilst there the Librarian showed us around and read us some stories, including Bee Bear and Florence Frizzball.  Some of us got new library cards too so we can go back with our parents!
