Enjoying the Autumn sunshine

PP2 have been studying verbs in their literacy lessons this week.
They used the information they have learned to write some wonderfully imaginative poems.
George Marriott’s poem is all about a game of rugby.











Acorn Club
Acorn Club have been very busy over the past few weeks.  They have explored the school grounds to find interesting materials to make some fantastic pictures.
This week they have been carving some brilliant pumpkins ready for bonfire night.

Everyone in Nursery has enjoyed our back garden this week, whatever the weather.  We’ve practised balancing along the log walk and worked hard to make our windmills go round.  Of course, we’ve also  made lots of lovely bubbles and some great, squelchy mud recipes!
