Another busy week has flown by! This week we have turned our focus to harvest festival. We have explored what it's about and used vegetables from our harvest display to create printing patterns and some investigations! We have even made a wheatsheaf out of salt dough. We also went down to the Old School this week to do some art work. We have tried to paint Autumn trees in the style of the artist, Leonid Afremov. This involved using a series of paint flecks to create the effect of leaves. The children absolutely loved painting and all said it was it the best thing!

We were once again joined by Little Orchard for our Forest School. We all had a really lovely morning. The children made leaf crowns and wooden necklaces using the electric drill which they all did competently with minimal support. It is so endearing to see how happy they are in the woods and how welcome they have made our nursery friends.

As we head into our final week before half term, here are a few reminders:

Harvest festival is on Monday afternoon at 1.45pm. Please join us if you can.

The final parents evening is on Tuesday 3.30 -6.30pm. Thank you to all the parents who attended on Thursday. It was lovely to be able to show you and tell you how well your children are doing.

Finally we have our zoo day on Thursday. Details in this week's newsletter.

Have a great weekend
