We met the most adorable little puppy today called Rex. He is an 8 week old Fox Labrador and he loved his time at nursery. All the children greeted him with happy smiles and giggles. Rex was very good and he is most welcome to come back and visit again!
Back in November, the children made our little hedgehog Spikey, a lovely warm nest made with sticks, twigs and leaves. We sang lullabies to help Spikey hibernate throughout the winter. Yesterday was the first day of Spring. We marked this occasion by waking up Spikey and helping him find some food. One little girl gave Spikey a china cup of water and a leaf!

A beautiful morning was spent in the woods with our little Butterfly children yesterday. Our theme is 'Transport' so the children found fun and muddy ways to learn about vehicles. The highlight of the morning was rolling the wheeled toys through the mud and making track prints on paper. The diggers and tractor toys dug up soil and we added water to make it especially muddy! We also met a huge spider and sang 'Incy Wincy Spider' to him!
