Autumn Walk

As it was such a lovely Autumn day the toddler room decided to go a little walk around the nursery and explore the natural environment.

I wonder what different colours you can see?

The toddlers are off on a leaf hunt


We were collecting lots of different colours of leaves in our buckets


Throwing leaves is great fun too!

Using the leaves to design wonderful autumn creations

Autumn Fun in the Toddler Room

We have been having lots of fun exploring different Autumn experiences in our toddler room this week. Through curiosity the children have been exploring sensory playdough, printing pictures with apples and exploring touch and texture with porridge oats.

The children chose various autumn colours to create prints using apples.

The children explored different natural materials with sensory playdough.

A is developing his fine motor skills here by exploring the sensory oats to find numbers and then chose to thread them onto a paintbrush. Fab problem solving!

NUMBERS EVERYWHERE- LETS COUNT

To celebrate Maths Week Scotland outdoors we decided to make an autumn number tuff tray. The boys and girls were counting the dots on the wooden discs and matching them up with the number hedgehogs using their problem solving and numeracy skills. The children then counted as a group out loud the number leafs in the correct order 1-20.


“This one has 4 dots so it matches number 4”

The boys and girls started pointing out all the different sizes of leafs there were, so we started comparing the sizes, the children put in order biggest/medium/smallest.

“This leaf is the smallest”

Bye bye Forest!

Our final day in the forest today and the sun shone for us. After a frosty start it turned into the perfect autumnal day, we saw brambles, rose hips and lots of leaves that were starting to get their brown autumn coats. To warm ourselves up we thought hot chocolate and marshmallows would be the order of the day to finish off our Forest adventure. I don’t think we were the only visitors to the forest who wanted some yummy hot chocolate!
