We have been looking for signs of Autumn in our nursery garden.
We have had a lovely start to the new school year. We have enjoyed welcoming new children and our new Deputy Head, Mrs Nattrass.
The children have enjoyed looking at the books that they have brought in from home. We have been learning all about books this year and the children understand about authors, titles and illustrators. They also know that they can find out what a story is about from the blurb on the back.

We talked to the children about setting up a perfume station. They were very keen and visited the herb garden in our allotment area to collect some herbs to mix with water in order to create different fragrances.

They were very pleased with the results!
We had a Teddy Bears’ picnic to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee.
