All of the children enjoyed going on an Autumn walk. They collected leaves to explore and used them to make leaf hedgehogs. 

Foundation One have had very special visits from Mrs Hellawell's pets as part of our 'Pets' topic. 

All of the children loved looking after a hamster, rabbit and tortoise for the day and learning about the different animals.
