It came together very quickly and was completed on Friday afternoon ready for the new week ahead. How exciting, and the children have now got a fabulous outdoor play area that they can enjoy all year round. We'll post more pictures next week of them exploring their new surroundings both indoor and out!!

Bikeathon Pictures

What have we been up to in Nursery?

Even though it poured with rain, we were not going to have our spirits dampened and, in true Whitehouse Common style, we soldiered on with our Bikeathon. Here are some pictures of the morning and afternoon children pedalling and scooting to raise money for our new role play sheds that will be erected in the Nursery playground.

.........and we were off.......






Mom's helped out as well!

In the afternoon, we used the Nursery playground as there were less children, but the same amount of effort went into it!



Well done to all the children. The sponsor money has come in thick and fast and so far we have raised just over £300. What a fantastic effort.

Back inside the Nursery, we had spent the week learning about Elmer the Elephant to start our topic on colours. The children all helped to decorate a gigantic Elmer to display on the wall.


Isn't he wonderful!
