Our World Book Month celebrations continued today when one of our parents Lizzie Finnigan came in to share her new story Button’s BIG Adventure with the children.
Button’s BIG Adventure tells the story of a button who gets lost when he falls off a little girl’s jacket and meets lots of different characters along the way in his journey to be found!
Our adventure with Button began when Lizzie realised one of her three lovely yellow buttons was missing from her cardigan!
We all began to look for Lizzie’s yellow button around the nursery. We had to look high and look low!
Luckily we finally found her button hiding in the kitchen! We were ready to start our story.
Lizzie read us the story of Button’s BIG Adventure, introducing us to all the different characters that Button met along the way.
Some of the characters were a boy with a kite, a Granny with a dog and a mermaid!
After she had finished reading the story, we shared some of our favourite parts of the story with Lizzie. She told us her favourite part was when the button twirled and whirled round and round and she even taught us the dance she had made up ! We had a great time whirling and twirling up and down and round and round just like the Button!
Thank you so much to Lizzie for visiting us and sharing her wonderful story with us. We had an awesome time!
It was positively springlike in the forest today. There were birds twittering in the trees and horses galloping in the field while the children explored in the sun. We found new trees to climb, developing our gross motor skills as well as developing resilience – “can we be brave and go higher?”
Snack was spent sitting in the sun, socialising with our friends and talking about what else we would like to do at the forest. We have been really lucky with the weather so far, long may it continue.
