This week at Gray's Farm



This week in nursery our new topic is about the story of the Rainbow Fish. The children will be talking and sharing ideas about different ways of being kind and helping each other. They will be experimenting and exploring colours, mixing light and dark shades. Finding out about fish, their habitat, what their skins look and feel like. They will have the opportunity to observe and paint a real  rainbow trout.
