# Gardening Equipment and Tools Plea!

Dear Parents,

We are really enjoying the warmer weather and have all been enjoying gardening, digging and looking for mini-beasts.

We would really appreciate any kind donations of gardening equipment, seeds, plants, pots etc that you may have lying around at home or sitting in the shed. We are desperately short of wheelbarrows, trowels, gardening gloves and plants!

Thank you for all of your support and any donations would be greatly received!

Thank you!!!

Our new topic of ‘growing’ began this week and already the children have been gardening in the outdoor area, exploring different fruits and vegetables and creating their own recipe for vegetable soup (although some recipes contain strawberries…not sure the grown ups will be trying that one!).

# Our super trip to the Library!

Wow! What a fantastic morning/afternoon we have all had today! On behalf of everyone that works in Early Years I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who gave up their time today to help Starfish and Seahorse class.

We had such a fantastic visit and have all thoroughly enjoyed our day. In the Library, one of the Librarians gave a talk about the Library and the types of books we might find there, she also read a really funny story! We then went on a treasure hunt to look for different types of books!! We were also given the opportunity to look at some of the books in the Library and were all allowed to take one home and borrow it for a short period of time!

We have absolutely loved our day at the Library!!
