Grandparents' Stay and Play Week. Lovely to see so many joining their grandchildren, to play and have fun, while getting an insight into what they get up to during the nursery morning.  (Oct 2019)

Celebrating Bonfire/Guy Fawkes Week. The children helped to build a fire, mark out the safety zone, and learn about fire safety as they enjoyed stories of King James I and his men, drank hot chocolate and ate marshmallows. Taking it in turns to be fire marshals, they then helped to put out the fire, and later used the charcoal to create pieces of art.  (Nov 2019)
