During this half term we are celebrating the children's love of rhymes and songs through our topic 'What nursery rhymes do I know?' We will enjoy lots of activities about rhymes, practise and perform through music, dance and song too.
It is a busy half term, as we will also be taking part in PE week, visiting nursery as part of our transition and completing our rhyme challenge!
Parents and carers are invited to attend the rhyme challenge at the end of the term, our performance will take place in preschool on Wednesday 20th July at 10.45am and 2.30pm. We hope you can join us!
