Happy Easter!

We have had some absolutely beautiful weather this week.  I have had trouble getting the children in from the garden! They have loved playing in the sand and water activity table and our new tents with adjoining tunnel.

We have been reading books about Easter and we made some delicious Easter nest cakes.  Even the little ones joined in and put the eggs on top with some help.
The children made some lovely Easter hanging eggs which they decorated with sequins and a cute poem.

We have had several trips to the park and the lakes and fed the geese which seem to have over-run Oakley Vale at the moment.  We only saw one duck there.  We also saw a heron and the children learnt how to saw its name.

Thank you to the children who came dressed in their party clothes on Monday.  We had a lovely little party to celebrate Amelia's 1st birhday and my 30th.  Thank you also for all the lovely cards and presents.  I am so lucky to work with some kind and thoughtful parents :-)  We hope you enjoyed the birthday cake I sent home with the children.  It was delicious.  I was so pleased with the work Teresa did on it.

We are looking forward to our Royal Wedding Garden party next Tuesday.  I have been busy preparing for it and have bought lots of union jack cake cases, bunting, paper plates and flags.  It will be lovely to get out into the garden and celebrate such a special day for our country.

The children have been role playing whilst playing with the small world toys.  They have especially loved playing with our new Happyland Royal Wedding play set from the Early Learning Centre.

I will update my blog next week with some Royal Wedding party photos!
