We made the most of the glorious sunshine this afternoon @ LF Clydach and went out for a walk. We visited the lovely Gaynor at the Fruit shop to purchase some Pumpkins, supporting a local business and strengthening our community links.

All the children had the opportunity to each choose their own pumpkin and experience paying using real money.

We have lots of fun & messy activities planned for our Pumpkins next week!! 🎃

All children had the opportunity to measure, mix and knead their own ingredients, fantastic for developing their mathematical and fine motor skills. Whilst the rolls were baking in the oven the children had great fun getting messy and mark making with the left over flour!! 😊

As promised the children and staff of Little Ferns Cwmparc went out into the community today using our walkodiles to deliver our Harvest donations to the older residents in the village. One of the residents Danny was extremely pleased to see the children. Danny used to be a volunteer in the school taking care of the gardening.

Our theme this term is transport. We have asked parents to make a 3D model of their child's favourite mode of transport for us to use on our wall display. We have already had some fantastic creations which will be zoooooooming on our display shortly. All is explained in the newsletters which have been making their way home with the children this week.

We would like to thank all parents/carers for all their support and their amazing feedback.

Please comment any feedback or ideas you may have....we look forward to hearing from you all...😁
