Winter is Coming!
Role play - Let's build a bonfire
We Read the story 'After The Storm' by Nick Butterworth. We used this book as inspiration to be able to paint a hedgehog picture. First we spread the brown paint and then we used a fork to create the prickles and spikes.
In the story 'After the Storm' the big oak tree feel over during the storm and the animals no longer had a home. The children used junk modelling materials to make a habitat so that the animals could hibernate during the winter.
Oak Tree Paintings
We have been learning about acorns and oak trees. We know that Percy the Park Keeper planted an acorn so we made a painting of an oak tree using our handprints, fingerprints and our arms. The results were amazing.
Counting the squirrel's conkers
We have been learning about squirrels and that they gather conkers so they are not hungry during the winter months. We counted how many conkers the squirrel had counted.
