Today the children have enjoyed playing with the shredded paper and hiding the animals in it. A group of children also worked as a team and built a fantastic train track that went all around the playroom. They were all very proud of their track! At circle time this morning the children enjoyed parachute games with Mandy and this afternoon they joined in with music and movement with Sophie. A big thank you to all the grandparents who have come into Alphabets this week. It has been great to see you all and the children have loved having you all visit. Next week is half term, we hope you all have an enjoyable week off and we look forward to seeing you again when Alphabets opens again on Monday 19th February. ...

We hope you all have a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing everyone again next week along with some of the children’s grandparents for our grandparents week. ...

Out in the garden today the children made an amazing den out of the tents, tunnels and blankets. All of the children had different ideas about how to make the den, but worked well together using everyone’s input. They then had a lot of fun playing inside it.
