Nursery enjoy a picnic! To link with our Seaside topic, we have been reading 'The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch' about Mr Grindling, the lighthouse keeper and his wife, Mrs Grindling. Every day Mrs Grindling sends Mr Grindling's sandwiches over to the lighthouse, across a pulley, and the naughty seagulls pinch them! This week in Nursery we have been making food, including sandwiches and cakes. Today we enjoyed our picnic. Mrs Grindling (Mrs Scott!) sent our picnic over to us and we had to shoo The seagulls away! Luckily they didn't get our picnic and we enjoyed our lovely food.
