Autumn is Coming!

3rd Oct 2016

This week we have had a super busy week exploring Autumn. We have had lots of activities for the children to explore. Our display board is coming together really nicely and we will be adding some lovely pictures of the Autumn walks the children have been having with their families.

At the beginning of the week we explored sticks, leaves and conkers that we have been collecting, we added these to Playdough to make different sculptures and trees. We have now added these same materials to our sand tray and the children have been looking at what they can make with the sticks and sand.

We have made some Autumn light catchers and have been drawing our own pictures of the nursery trees. On our display board there are some pictures of some spider webs and spiders that we encountered when collecting leaves in the garden.

Using lots of paint we have been printing on some leaf shapes and acorns which are now on display in the room.

The Busy Bees have shown lots of interest in Hedgehogs and have had a go at making their very own collages of hedgehogs we have now even made some beautiful hedgehogs out of some Playdough we have made.
