A natural cooling break in the weather has heralded the autumn season. Our weekly walks will see the children gathering leaves and learning about the changes that so visibly occur in nature. The colour of the leaves and their falling, animals hibernating, and early evening darkness approaching.
Hats, scarves, wellies, boots and gloves will be worn frequently to enjoy the fresh days and varied weather conditions as much as we enjoyed the warm days of this summer.
The new season is also reflected in the activities and themes within the nursery, with mixing and painting in autumn colours, collecting leaves, conkers and incorporating them into the day's activities. We are also preparing for Harvest Festival by collecting seasonal food for the children to share with the community. This is also a time to learn new songs.
