# We’re going on an autumn hunt 🌱🌿🍂🍁

The toddlers decided to go for a walk and to keep ourselves safe we had a chat about our safety rules, holding hands and listening to the adults. As we were crossing a road, we had to be extra careful to look and listen at the side of the road.

On our walk we had to look up, down and all around. We looked at all the autumn colours of the leaves and we collected the leaves that had fallen on the ground in our special bags. We listened to the birds and saw a squirrel but it was too fast for us to take a photo 😁

After we collected our leaves we played hide and seek, had some races and saw a most interesting van that came off its back wheels and stretched nearly to the moon 😳

We then brought all our autumn goodies back to nursery where the children enjoyed decorating their autumn bags with their leaves. Some chose to paint and we shared them with our friends who may not have been able to come on our walk. We transferred our leaves to the playdough where the children were leaf printing.

Autumn is here and is providing glorious colours, textures, temperatures for us all to enjoy 😁

# Go Ziggy

All the children in the 3-5 room should be coming home with a Go Safe with Ziggy book this week. This is a programme developed by Road Safety Scotland. The programme teaches children road safety skills through various resources.

# We’re going on a local walk!

In the home room this week we decided to take advantage of the nice day and go for a walk around our local environment.

The children were looking for different colours and numbers that they could find and they were also collecting different autumn materials as this is what they have shown an interest in talking about: autumn and the leaves changing colours.

N and E spotted numbers on the postbox as we were walking past…

The children noticed from a distance that they could spot a house that stood out from all the rest, can you tell which one?!

I and R spotted numbers on a fence as we were walking past, do you know what numbers they are?

D and A were using mathematical language and conversation  at the top of the hill saying that ”we are so high up look how far up we came”

Most importantly, we were making sure we looked left and right and listened and looked for cars coming to ensure that we all crossed the road safely!
