Picnic on the Paddock

What a wonderful time we all had at Kent Life on Friday!

It was so lovely for all of us to be together for our Nursery trip and join in with the mini beast hunt and meeting the animals. Elizabeth was so enthusiastic with all the children and the young farmer obviously loves his job looking after the farm animals. What great names the animals had too! The children were fabulous at listening and joining in with the bug hunt and it was great to see them relaxed around the animals and giving them all a little stroke. 
Our story this week about Anna Hibiscus has had us all thinking about what makes us happy. The children had a good think and drew some great pictures of the things which make them happy from the sunshine and rainbows to bananas and clouds. We also chatted about when we are not feeling so happy and that it's okay to feel sad, grumpy or shy. Myself and Mrs Sayers joined in with the conversations too, explaining to the children that we do not always feel happy and that's okay too.
