Our Pre-Nursery bees giggled excitedly as they tried to prevent the cold, coloured ice rounds from slipping out of their hands.

Monday is our favourite day because we have assembly!

Our Pre-Nursery bees always look forward to Mondays. The reason is because of the mini-indoor assembly that takes place within their own classroom each week.
