Our trip to Heaton Park Farm 

Today we went on a trip to Heaton park farm. We had a lovely time , first we went for a ride on our Mini Bus , we had a lovely walk around the garden spotting spring flowers and walking through the dark tunnel to listen to how our voices changed in there. Next we visited the animals in the farm , we saw rabbits, hens, goats, and a baby pig that was fast asleep, a lama and even a peacock who was very excited to show off his tail feathers. Lastly we went to see the donkeys they were very friendly. We then came back to school just in time for lunch , we had such a great time thanks to all the parents  that joined us.

Autumn was a very busy time for us in Nursery, we learnt all about ourselves, each other and our likes and dislikes. We have had great fun painting our portraites, talking about our friendships and family and deciding the things we like and dislike. We all like pizza but we all like to put different toppings , what do you like on pizza ?
