Autumn fun!

October 10th, 2013

With only two weeks to go before half term, Early Years have been out and about enjoying the crisp sunny weather! On Tuesday we went on the new school minibus to Space in Preston. We enjoyed exploring all the different sensory experiences especially the giant slide….weeeee!!!

We have been out into Kirkham,walking through the park collecting leaves and twigs.  We listened to the wind in the trees, saw a train speeding by and heard the church clock striking.  On the way back to school we called at the weekly market to choose two large pumpkins. These will be used as part of our class sensory experiences.

We had a visit from the fire service too, who came to talk to us about fire safety. They set up a dark room in which we had to pretend to be firefighters and find our way through an obstacle course!

We have also been very creative, making a textured collage of Felix the neuron from CBEEBIES’ Nina and the Neurons. We have enjoyed exploring different materials and sticking them to our picture.

Thank you for all the Autumnal items you collected over the weekend. We will be using these to make prints and different kinds of marks next week.
Next week on Tuesday the whole school is taking part in pink day in aid of Breast Cancer research, so we invite pupils to wear something pink for £1.
