Nursery A have begun their new unit of inquiry online.  The children have enjoyed all our discussions about food and have shown some strong prior knowledge.

Our main focus this week has been about fruits and vegetables.  We have been identifying them and inquiring into where our fruits and vegetables come from.  We have been able to incorporate our new unit into the children's Jewish Studies focus on Brachot.
