The children listened to the story then made their own ‘Nutbrown hare’ ears to wear while they took a book walk outside in the play area. For this activity they were each given a small basket and had to visit each page in turn to collect something which would remind them of that part of the story. One of the pages had us hopping to see if we could hop as high as Nutbrown hare, another page had us collecting leaves to settle Little Nutbrown hare to sleep.
After the book walk we went inside for snack time; a treat of cakes and juice. When we had finished snack time some children went outside to play while others stayed inside to make a paper plate moon and stars to take home and hang up to remind them of the story.
The children all had a surprise as they left, they were given their own copy of the board book ‘Guess How Much I Love You’ to keep as a gift from Sacred Heart School. They were all delighted!
