This month we worked together with the Butterfly room to make and take part in the local scarecrow competition. The boys and girls in the Caterpillar room used their creative skills to make the golden eggs and harp for our Jack and the Beanstalk entry.
We have also watched our environment outdoors change as autumn appeared. We had fun watching the leaves fall from the trees, going outside to play in them and exploring other autumnal objects in the tuff tray. This supported the children in developing their language skills when talking together with the staff about the different colours and textures of the different objects.
We also had fun celebrating Halloween by taking part in different activities over the week resulting in a party at the end of the week. Over the week we carved pumpkins, painted black cat pictures and ghost pictures, and developed our hand eye coordination with hammers, golf tees and the pumpkins.
