Over the Summer term so far we have had lots of fun both inside and outside. We have been playing in the playground at 'Big Nursery' as we are having our garden done but we have enjoyed all the new challenges over there with the bikes and the trim trail. Inside we have been dressing up as pirates, making treasure maps and decorated biscuits with 'treasure', we went on a big hunt to find the scrummy treats as well. We have also been playing with the farm set and after busy days playing with the farm set we have gone over to the ice-cream parlour and made some ice-creams. We even had ice-cream for our snack one day mmmmm.
