Snow and Spring time activities!

Getting creative in Nursery

The past few weeks have been full of creative activities to help the children engage with the beautiful season of Autumn.  We have made our very own clay hedgehogs, used paint and cotton buds to print an Autumnal scene and made Autumn leaves using tissue paper (which are now displayed in the Nurs
