The children have shown interest in the outdoor area as they have been discussing the changes in the weather. Staff have been encouraging the children to make choices and develop their own learning and share this with others.
While exploring the outdoors some of the children have been transporting water around the garden as they make tea parties for staff and friends. Also some children have been discussing the change in the trees as well as the different colours.
They have explored our local surroundings as we went a walk around the school grounds collecting leaves and sticks. The children have also been learning a new autumn song. Reflecting on the song the children took this opportunity to paint their hands and make leaves.
The children have been spending most of the session outdoors exploring the mud kitchen and have been looking for mini beasts. They have been taking indoors outdoors and doing lots of painting on the fence and using chalk on the ground to draw different shapes. They also have been building dens with tarpaulin and loving sitting inside it reading books.
