We have been very busy getting creative making our autumn display. We investigated many materials such as textured paper, sand, paint and glue to create a sensory tree so we can pull ourselves up and feel. Lots of photos were added of us creating this and real life photos to represent what we have created.
Recently we have been promoting understanding and using single words, the tunnel has been very popular with promoting this, hiding ourselves away and saying ‘boo!’ as we reappear.
We have been using the large construction blocks to encourage physical development, creating tall structures and encouraging us to pull ourselves up and cruise around.
To explore the new season of autumn we took part in jelly and leaf sensory play. We first went on a nature walk around the nursery collecting fallen leaves, pine cones and sticks. We really loved collecting the natural resources and placing them in a big basket. After this we added our collections to our orange, autumn themed, jelly. We then explored and investigated this through senses by touching, squashing, smelling, tasting and listening to the crunchy leaves and the sloppy jelly. We all had great fun!
We have had some fantastic fun throughout September! When creating some wonderful pictures we like to make marks using coloured pencils. This helps us to develop our hand eye co-ordination and tripod grip for writing skills.

We have been developing our ICT skills on the computer. We have been moving the mouse and watching the effect it has on the screen. We have been playing a game called Rizbi, where we can colour pictures of a cats, dogs and dinosaurs.
We have been developing our physical development skills, particularly our co-ordination and balance when kicking a large ball in the garden.
We have enjoyed a trip to Blackberries Farm travelling in the Blackberries bus! We learnt how the fruit is grows on the trees and we enjoyed exploring and picking apples and pears to take back to Blackberries Nursery. We ate some of the fruit for snack and shared the story ‘A New House for Mouse’. We enjoyed our time at Blackberries farm and are looking forward to the next adventure there.
