Today the Stourbridge Toddlers and Pre-School One have been out on a wonderful Autumn walk exploring their local park.
Getting wrapped up we put our coats, hats and gloves on and set off to see what we could find! There were lots of shiny brown conkers and with some adult help we could look closer at some of the prickly shells. We put sticky tape on our gloves and used them to catch the leaves falling from the trees, there were so many beautiful colours – brown, orange, green and red. The children loved examining the different types of leaves and noticed that some were, “Big!” and others were, “Small” and that some felt, “Spikey” whilst others were, “Smooth”. Then listening carefully, we heard the leaves crunching and rustling under our feet and the squirrels rushing about picking up acorns to eat over the Winter.
We can’t wait to get back to nursery so we can get creative thinking about all the amazing Autumnal things we have seen.
