This week we continued our harvest topic, naming and sorting seasonal fruit and vegetables. We explored where different fruit and vegetables grow and prepared our own autumnal feast for snack time.

The children enjoyed engaging in role play with their friends, acting out different characters from our Farmer’s Market, such as ‘shopkeepers’ and ‘customers’. Alongside this, the children also tended to their vegetable garden under the stairs, to-and-froing their goods to the Harvest market.

The children had a lot of fun acting out the story ‘The Enormous Turnip’ and re-telling the story to their friends using the story props.

Next week we will be focusing on leaves, looking at the different types of trees that they come from and why they change colour during autumn.

We will be focusing the sound l, number 6 and the colour green.
