This week we have been reading the story ‘Little red hen.’ The children have acted out the story using masks and baked their own bread. We then tasted different types of bread. We tasted: tiger bread; poppy seed bread; Mediterranean bread, carrot and pumpkin seed bread; sunflower seed and honey bread and pitta bread. The children then talked about their favourite bread.
Mrs Greaves brought in a hedgehog that she has been looking after at home. She told us all about Nicol the hedgehog that had been poorly and was rescued from the Mere house nursery garden. Mrs Greaves volunteers at Warrington hedgehog rescue and was pleased to tell the children that Nicol is now healthy and ready to be released into the wild. She showed the children the gloves that she wears when she handles the hedgehogs and the children asked lots of questions.
