This week we went into the woods to collect leaves to use for our hedgehog collage. All the children were asked to find a small and a large one which they were really excited about and scurried off into the woods to find.
On the way Heidi found a slug and called all her friends to have a close look. She even produced a mini kaleidoscope (a prize she had won from the prize box) that was in her pocket! She used it to take a closer look and all her friends asked for a turn and she eagerly shared it.
Daisy was busy collecting leaves and used them to decorate her hat! She then found a worm which she picked up and Livia told us that it was wiggly! Summer followed the minibeast theme and told us that caterpillars live on a leaf and we were all excited by the ladybirds that were everywhere in the woods!
We entered the farmers field to discover that our stone houses which we build every week had been knocked down; the teachers thought the farmer had done it on his tractor but the children had a very different opinion! They believed that the Big Bad Wolf had done it! How rude! They were quick to rebuild it and we decided that Esmee and Zach would stay in the field to guard it which they weren’t too sure about! We also went to look at our stick house that someone else had built but we always add to it but that had been blown down too! We were very sad!
We sang our song about leaves which was a counting song and all the leaves were blowing in the wind and fell off the tree. Mrs Fenton acted it out for us and the children counted the leaves. We also ordered the leaves we had collected. Lucie put hers in order and said she had a ‘small’, ‘medium’ and ‘large.’ So then we decided to put our friends in order! They all wanted to be the tallest!
What a fabulous day!
