settling in really well. We have been reading the Owl Babies story each
day to help the children understand that although mummy or
another carer leaves them at Squirrels they will always come back
later to pick them up. As the trees in our garden are beginning to lose
their leaves and the oak is dropping it’s acorns the children have been
collecting them and using them in lots of activities. They have made
pictures with them, counted them, used them to decorate their sand castles and
pretended they are food in the mud kitchen. Today we added glitter to the
playdough and some of the children made sparkly shapes.
There has been lots of painting and drawing going on and some pretend
parties in the role play area. There has also been a lot of ‘fixing’
things in the garden area, using pretend tools.
