Nursery Catholic Life and Mission


Monday 13th November 2023

This week we have been able to buy poppies for Remembrance Day which goes towards the British Legion charity. Charity is one of our virtue focuses. When the children had bought their poppies and donated their money we spoke about what they represent and then created our own poppy pictures for a display within our classroom.

Today we worked together as a team to make God's Wonderful World more beautiful. We had the opportunity to plant some bulbs in the garden outside of Nursery which will hopefully flower next spring.
