Autumn on PhotoPeach
St Mary’s Parent Council AGM will take place on
Thursday 19 November at 7pm followed by the
first meeting of the year.
Thanks to all Parents, Grandparents and helpers who came out last Saturday to help us to organise our garden area.It’s great to see it all looking so tidy and ready for the Spring. It was lovely to have the company of some of our children and hopefully we will have more in the Spring. We even came across our resident frog!
It was agreed that we should meet up again early Spring, maybe towards the end of February, to see what else we can do to make our grounds even better.There are some bird boxes and butterfly hides that we could fix to the trees and some ideas that need a little concrete – do we have anyone with experience of concrete mixing out there?
We also managed to get some features fixed on to the walls. Our new water wall is a big hit with the children and the mirror arch… well, it’ll be interesting to see what the children make of that… something to do with a fairyland, maybe?
Thanks again for all your support!
Hallowe’en in the Nursery on PhotoPeach
On Thursday morning, Kayleigh from the Zoo Lab visited the morning nursery to show the children some unusual creatures. We all learned some amazing facts about them, eg the cockroach only goes at one speed, and the millipede can grow new legs!
Since coming back after the Summer holidays, we’ve been very busy in the nursery. We thought you might like to see some of the things we’ve been up to…
