Autumn leaves come falling down…

red, orange, yellow, brown ????

Our children have been getting into the autumn spirit recently by exploring giant autumnal sensory bins, collecting, painting and printing with fallen leaves and using them to make sticky wreath pictures too.

The various loose autumnal parts have intrigued our children and they have focused well taking their time to observe closely, share their thoughts, discuss their personal experiences and then play with the loose parts in their own self-chosen exploratory ways.

Our skilled practitioners used these play opportunities to extend communication and language for our children and they introduced new words and scaffolded conversations and helped them all describe their observations and experiences.

Quite simply autumn creates awe and wonder and this translates beautifully into imaginative, creative, collaborative, exciting play! ♥️xxxx
