On the 4th July the children at the nursery were listening to the story of Mr. Jeremy Fisher by Beatrix Potter . Demita brought in something special from outside and that was Mr. Jeremy Fisher. The children enjoyed looking at Mr. Jeremy Fisher and discussing if he was big or small and what colour he is . When the children finished looking at Mr. Jeremy Fisher they set him free on the green. But Mr. Jeremy Fisher didn't hop away, he buried himself in the soil ! We then discussed why he buried himself and a child said " because the birds might get him"
During the day the children listened to the stories of Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle Duck, Tom Kitten and Jeremy Fisher . They then did some paintings of the characters fro,m the stories they listened to . The children got to choose what characters they wanted to paint and were able to identify their colours . We then shown the paintings to the staff at Beatrix Potter head office. . We then received a lovely message from Beatrix Potter company .
On Friday 6th July the children then dressed up as Peter Rabbit and did the actions to the song of Peter Rabbit has a fly upon his nose.
On Monday 2nd July 2018 the children went to Maycroft Manor to see the residents that they have made friends with, Also visiting the residents was a lovely dog called Oscar which is a therapy dog. The children enjoyed stroking Oscar with the residents.
