Autumn Term 2019

Welcome to The Nest page.

Meet some of the children who make The Nest such a special place to spend time:

The children spent time looking at their features in a mirror. They used these observations to produce self portraits in paint and clay.
Remembrance Day
The children printed their own poppies with paint.
Welcome to our puppet show!
The children use our puppet theatre to retell stories that we are sharing and to make up their own. Here the children are acting out their own version of The Owl Babies.
