October 22nd – 26th

The children are looking forward to our field trip to the pumpkin patch this coming Tuesday! In anticipation for the pumpkin patch, we had eager discussions about the life cycle of a pumpkin, learned how to draw a pumpkin, and made pumpkin crafts with our big buddies. We also had lots of fun on our Nature Walk this week, where we explored the changing colours of autumn by collecting many different coloured leaves.
