The monthly theme for June is ‘My Body and Healthy Eating’.
When looking at ‘my body’ the babies will enjoy making prints of their hands and feet, and using paint and paint brushes to paint a body shape. They will learn about their body parts by learning the song ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’.

They will enjoy learning the song ‘Apples and bananas’.
