This week we have started our Autumn activities. We have enjoyed exploring our interactive Autumn displays and discussing the objects and colours that we can see. We have a wonderful match table full of autumn themed activities and we have really enjoyed accessing this during our free time.
As part of our activities linked to our story Fletcher and the Falling Leaves, we made some beautiful leaf sun catchers using our autumn leaves and some coloured cellophane.
During our cooking session this week we practiced our fine motor skills when mixing and creating the spikes on our bread hedgehogs! We used raisins for eyes and we all got involved when creating our spikes.
We also explored some autumn themed maths activities as part of our problem solving session. We sang “1,2,3 little acorns” and counted all of the children in a line. When the squirrel takes the acorns to his store the children really enjoyed running back to their seats.
Next week will be our last week of the half term and what a wonderful first half term it has been! We will carry on with our Autumn activities and look forward to our Pumpkin Party on Tuesday! On Wednesday we will be completing our sponsored walkathon as a class as part of our 50th birthday celebrations!
