As the weather has taken a turn for the worse, we have embraced the seasonal changes and wholeheartedly thrown ourselves into our learning this week!
Fridays are always a very busy day with our visits to the forest and the library and this week has been no exception. We had a walk in the forest, collecting sticks, leaves and stones for us to use in our mud kitchen recipes. The children enjoyed exploring the forest and looking at the changes in nature; they even got to pick blackberries that they squished and made paint with. They were delighted to see that the different shades of berries made different shades of paint!
We then had our visit to the library where we listened to an Autumn story and the children got to choose their very own library book to take home. Please bear in mind that the library books need to be returned (in their book bags) every Friday in order for them to change it for a different one. The children really enjoyed looking at the selection of books and I am sure they will love reading their books with you at bedtime… if they can wait that long!
This week we read the story of “Stick and Stone” It is a lovely story about forming friendships and helping each other. It was wonderful to see the children really taking this message onboard and being very kind to everyone in class.
How you can help at home:
If you are out and about this weekend, please look out for pinecones, conkers, sticks and acorns that we can use in our mud kitchen.
We hope you all have a restful weekend and enjoy cosying up inside while the weather is turning cooler.
