For the past year I have looked forward to Thursday mornings.

Minis Moving in the New Year

Published on

Before Christmas we held a party for our Mini Movers and Moving Minis (classes for children aged 18months - 4years old).

We had loads of fun singing Christmas songs and playing in the bubble machine and then finished the morning off with mince pies and orange juice. Lani and Sharon (both aged 3) had a great time filming these short clips to tell you how they got on!

We have seen a huge improvement in our Minis this term - lots more confidence and rhythm! We can’t wait to see everyone again for the start of the spring term in January.
