During the Autumn term our children were busy developing their skills in the natural world, and took advantage of the open space around them. The early years got in touch with their caring side to create nests for the birds and their eggs to live in. Children with the help of their practitioners collected their own resources and then used their fine motor skills to weave the twigs together. This increased the children’s self-awareness and gave them the confidence to try new things in the upcoming weeks.
The children enjoyed becoming explorers while they made new discoveries on their nature walk. They took daring routes, overcame obstacles and were able to make links between what they saw and the experiences they have had at home. Imaginations were sparked and ideas were flowing in this new environment that children have become accustomed to exploring. It has become a part of their routine and the children look forward to this routinely excursion.
