Spring 2 Week 1 - 28th February 2022

We have been settling back into Nursery after the half-term holiday and talking about what we did over the half-term break.  We celebrated Pancake Day or ‘Shrove Tuesday’ and World Book Day this week too!

We learnt about Shrove Tuesday and why we call it ‘Pancake Day’.  We discussed how people celebrate Shrove Tuesday and how Lent is a special time for Christians. We talked about what ingredients are needed to make pancakes and what you might put on top of a pancake.  We all said what our favourite toppings are!

We enjoyed tasting pancakes and chose some toppings to put on them. We talked about what we like and don’t like.  We put the toppings on ourselves and did really well spreading jam and squeezing lemons all by ourselves!

We had fun making playdough pancakes and designing our own pancakes by cutting and sticking different toppings on!

Thursday was World Book Day! Our theme was ‘Bedtime Stories’ so we came to Nursery in our pyjamas! Some of us dressed as book characters too.  Some children brought in their favourite books which we enjoyed reading.  We also played a game where we had to guess the book character and book from the clues.  We love reading!
