Autumn 1 2020 - Gallery and Work


It has been wonderful to see how quickly all of the children have settled into nursery. They have had lots of fun exploring and playing with their new friends.


We have noticed lots of changes in the nursery garden. The leaves have changed colour and they have fallen off the trees. We have enjoyed listening to stories about Autumn and have explored the Autumn treasures we have found.


We have listened to stories about Pumpkins and Halloween. We cut the pumpkins up to find out what was inside. We cooked the pumpkins and some children tasted them.
