# Children in Need 2014

The children have had great fun dressing up as their favourite hero to raise money for children in need !

# Autumn

This week we have been thinking about the changes which take place during the season of Autumn! We have observed leaves and used our observational skills to draw what we see! We have also sorted clothes into what we wear in Autumn and Summer. Encourage your child to look for signs of Autumn when you’re out and about!!
