We have been learning all about Autumn. We looked at how the trees change when the leaves turn orange, red, yellow and brown. We have talked about how the leaves fall off the trees. We had lots of fun pretending to make pumpkin soup after reading the story “Pumpkin soup”. The pumpkin was interesting to touch and smell, we noticed lots of seeds and that some parts were slimy to touch.

Three Billy Goats Gruff

This week we have read the story Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have had lots of fun constructing bridges this week to help the goats cross the river and get away from the troll. Children have made bridges using recycled materials as well as wooden blocks and Duplo. They really had to think about making the bridges strong enough for the goats to get across.

We have been creative making play dough trolls. Some children even made play dough cakes to give to the troll so they wouldn’t eat the goats.






Little Red Riding Hood

We have enjoyed reading the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We were all very creative this week and made different parts to build up a picture. On Monday we decorated the paper using tissue paper to make the sky and forest. Tuesday we made little Red Riding Hood and Wednesday we made a house using different textures. Finally on Thursday we made a wolf.

This week, when parents came to play, we made baskets to take to Grandma.
