Look what the Reception and Nursery children have been up to on their recent Welly Wednesday sessions: They have all thoroughly enjoyed their time outdoors. Their activities have included: noticing the changes that the autumn season brings, they have enjoyed using their senses to see, hear, feel and smell during a variety of experiments and investigations. The autumn colours look wonderful and the children love to rustle about in the fallen leaves. We have been on a hunt to find a skunk that linked to a book we were reading, luckily we didn’t find one but we have found many interesting species living in our grounds. We even went on a pumpkin hunt and managed to find some of them lurking in mysterious places! To mark Remembrance Day, we made a wreath on the playground; we visited the prayer garden to say a few quiet prayers and held a very respectful two-minute silence. We also made some rangoli patterns to show our respect for Diwali. Each week we link our walks to the subjects we are learning indoors, sometimes we even create transient art pieces to display in our classrooms.
