Bike Riding

The children in the Nursery had a chance to try out the different bikes and vehicles we have on offer to play with. They had to navigate around the playground passing through the gates laid out for them.


The children in Rainbow Class enjoyed learning about trains this week. They particularly enjoyed acting out going on a journey.
