The Hospital

The Hospital

The children had so much fun exploring “The Hospital” in February. Through role play, the children had the opportunity to be nurses, doctors, receptionists and patients. They really took their roles very serious! We made x-rays, built The Lourdes hospital with lego and made food for the hospital canteen using playdough. Here are some photographs.
