Dear Parents and Carers of our Worcester Park, Kingston and Stoneleigh Nurseries,
We hope everyone enjoyed the month of October, We have enjoyed lots of craft making this month, creating seasonal sensory trays and Halloween crafts.
During October, our focus topic of the month was based around ‘Seasonal Changes and Halloween”. The children have enjoyed exploring with leaves, pumpkin seeds and learning about the changes in the weather.
