Pre-school Hedgehogs

Over the past few weeks we have been learning about hibernation and harvest. Last week we made some hedgehogs from clay and matchsticks, this encouraged the children to use their fine motor skills in order to manipulate the hedgehogs and put their spikes in. They painted them and added eyes, the children will be bringing these home this week.

Pre-School Our Autumn Walk

Last week we went on an autumn walk around the village, first we went to the churchyard to collect leaves for some of our activities. The children enjoyed throwing the leaves up into the air and watching them tumble down. We then walked through the school lane and looked for nuts, acorns and twigs. The children loved picking up all of these Autumn treasures and bringing them back to pre-school for our interest table.
