The children visited Maycroft Manor to collect conkers. The children looked up high and down low for the conkers, when they found the conkers the children went to put it in the bucket. The children also visited the Deneway to take a look at their conkers. Instead they saw a ambulance and waved to the paramedics,
Once back at nursery the children played with the conkers in the playdough and one child said "a conker beach!"
Over the past couple of weeks we have had Sussex Police out in the nursery for some advice with regards to the public playground and our gated playground. We would like to thank Sussex Police for their ongoing support and advice they have given us.
When the officers came out the children made a big canvas of a police officer, The children chose what colour hair they wanted their version of a police officer to have, They then did rainbow handprints and stuck police stickers on the canvas.
Once again we would like thank our local Police Officers and PCSO'S that came out, we appreciate what you do and you are our "super heroes!"
