It’s Our Third Birthday!

Making split pin puppets

Another busy day at Monkey Puzzle, the children enjoyed making split pin puppets with our resident artist and testing them out using our new projector. The children now always remember to prepare snack for our guinea pigs and enjoyed another visit from the stick insects.

Celebrating Chinese New Year

We have had a great start to the week celebrating Chinese New Year, we were kindly invited by a local school to watch their dragon dance. We then performed our own using a dragon we made. The children enjoyed the first of this weeks Chinese lunches and made paper lanterns. We also welcomed our pet guinea pigs into the nursery, who are in need of some special names so please come forward with your suggestions.
