Welcome to the Nursery

The Nursery class is Saint Francis. He is the Patron Saint of animals. Saint Francis’ feast day
is celebrated on Friday 4th October.
We ask that Saint Francis watches over all living things and helps us to appreciate
the many beautiful animals and creatures in our world
Our Topic for this half term is Autumn. Where we explore the changes in weather and the environment around us. We also look at the different colours of Autumn and animals that we might see around this time of year.
