The children also made poppy's and some are displayed in our Pre-School windows, Miss Champion kindly brought in her father-in-laws medals for show and tell.

On Tuesday 18th October Miss Clarke led a successful play dough demonstration which led to some very messy children, parents and staff.
On Friday 14th October, it was lovely to see so many families at our group story time. 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt',  was read by Mrs Williams and re-enacted by Mrs Cooper. We continued to read this book during our story time the following week and the children thoroughly enjoyed.
