This week the children went to Secretts to pick strawberries and came back with a lovely selection.
We had fun back at nursery making our own pots of strawberry jam and blending the strawberries to make fresh strawberry ice lollies.
Home learning tip
Go strawberry picking with your family and you can talk about lots of mathematical concepts- how many ? Can you add one more ? If you eat one you have one less ? Estimate how many are in your pot .
