Number recognition is part of the daily routine in the nursery. Some of the children in the 2-5 room took part in an activity where they were given a number between 1-10 and were to count out the correct number of blocks to match that number.
The children in the 2-5 room are currently learning about different people in the community. All children, and staff, had great fun exploring all the equipment the policeman/woman had to carry with them and on the van.

The children made ice cream to celebrate 'Ice cream for breakfast' day. They enjoyed the process of making the ice cream, and especially the end result, tasting it!
