We have been learning about Autumn and observing the seasonal changes all around us. Many of the children have been out and about with their Mummies and Daddies collecting Autumn treasures to add to our new role play and investigation area that the children like to call 'the woods'.
In the woods this week the children have enjoyed counting conkers, using the magnifying glasses to 'be detectives' and find animals that live in the woods. They have also built pretend campfires and made picnics for the animals.
We have shared the stories The Helpful Hedgehog and the Percy the Park Keeper book The Hedgehog's Balloon. We have each made a salt dough hedgehog with matchsticks for prickles.
