During October in toddler room we will be learning all about autumn and the changes that happen during the season. The children will collect leaves from the garden and use these to create leaf rubbing pictures.
On an exciting trip to the local shops the children will be buying some autumn vegetables which will be used to make a yummy vegetable soup and for us to talk about staying healthy.
Toddlers will make their own play dough using different autumn colours including brown and orange they will also be encouraged to add different objects and materials to explore different textures and patterns.
We love our messy play in toddler room and will be having lots of fun including using shaving foam, jelly and ice. To explore colours we will use different food colourings to explore how colours can be changed by mixing them together.
We will be celebrating Halloween making various art and crafts, this we will be making spiders, pumpkins, bats. As well as carving our own pumpkin and using the inside to plant seeds to grow our own pumpkins for next year.
Pre-School Room October 2018
This month in pre-school we are learning about autumn. We will be going on lots of autumn nature hunts to see what we can find and then making pictures using the items we have found on our hunts. We will be exploring different items of autumn during our Forest School sessions.
We have an exciting new book called “We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt” we will be using this book to develop our listening and reading skills. We will be expanding on the book by going on our own leaf hunt and talking about the different seasons and the changes that happen to the weather and the world around us as the seasons change.
We are also looking forward to starting our Halloween celebrations all working together to create our own spooky Halloween house to explore.
