Since the Easter break we have had lots of bank holidays but somehow the nursery has seemed busier than ever.
The day before the royal wedding the parents committee organised a party for the children. They put on their crowns, which they had made the previous day, and tucked into sandwiches, crisps, sausages and sausage rolls, followed by royally decorated cup cakes, jelly and ice cream.
No wonder the ‘wedding cake’, made of sponge, strawberries and cream and which stood 18 inches high with a windmill on the top (which went round in the breeze), had to be wrapped and taken home. I am sure the children will remember it in years to come.
We couldn’t use the Parish Hall on the following Thursday because of the polling, so we arranged for the children to be dropped off at Wendover Woods. Luckily the weather was fine and they had a great time making a den out of branches and finding bugs – one was a May bug another a centipede.
We went on a bear hunt which the children loved and played on the adventure playground. They had all brought their lunch boxes so a good time was had by all.
On the Friday we went to see the Maypole dancing at Lee Common School. The Leeside children were really well behaved; I was proud of them all, especially those under three years old.
