Nursery - Autumn
This half term Nursery have been learning all about the season of Autumn. They have been looking at the changes they can see occurring all around them in their local environment and finding out why they happen.
The children went outside to collect some leaves and were challenged to find leaves that were green, yellow, orange, red and brown. They explored how they were all different shapes and sizes and investigated how they could sort them into different groups according to their properties.
The children were also fascinated by the conkers, pine cones, acorns and sycamore seeds that were on the Autumn interest table and thought about which animals might like to collect the acorns and why.
We have been playing with the witch's potion this week and thinking about the texture and consistency of her brew!
We have been digging our raised bed and then planting broad bean seeds. In the Reception outdoor area we have also planted some wild flower seeds to help encourage different creatures.
