This week in Nursery we explored why most leaves change colours in autumn and their important role making food for the trees so they can survive through winter.

A big thank you to all who foraged for leaves over the weekend. The leaves were greatly appreciated and used to create leaf people inspired by the book ‘Leaf Man’ by Lois Ehlert in our ‘Andy Goldsworthy corner’.

We looked at the shape of leaves; comparing, matching and describing their shapes and made leaf prints in Playdough.

The children enjoyed small world play under the stairs with characters from the story ‘Percy the Park Keeper; After the Storm’ by Nick Butterworth.
