Half term fun around the nurseries

February 20th, 2015 by Sarah Steel

We’ve had a great half-term week this week, with activities ranging from pancake tossing to Chinese New Year celebrations. At Faringdon we had a range of activities around the film ‘Frozen’, as this continues to be a real favourite with the children. Amongst other things, they made ‘Frozen’ coloured cakes!
