During the October break some of the children went for an autumnal walk to collect brown, orange, red and green coloured leaves and twigs. Inspired by their wonderful walks the children in the toddler room chose to create their own leaf men using the leaves and twigs they had collected. Then using their favourite leaf, they created their masterpeices developing their fine motor skills, coordination and creativity.
Last week the children watched me make a swing with rope and a sturdy stick for the seat. Today, they tried to make their own swing which was brilliant to watch! Here they are climbing up the tree to throw the rope over.
Later, the children thought they saw a sea monster in the river. We decided to get a closer look by standing on the riverbank.
There was definitely one in there or maybe more – the children were convinced! And we just love swings.
The children were smelling the flowers in the garden saying how pretty they were so we decided to make pictures with them. The children harvested lots of different flowers and herbs which they made self portraits with.
Well done to all the children and families who participated in world book day today.
They decorated potatoes as their favourite book characters.
I’m sure you will agree all the potatoes are fantastic!
