The children helped to make a Christmas wreath this week. They collected sticks from the garden and then decorated them with paint and glitter.
After that they were supported in the shaping of the wreath. They used a variety of resources and techniques such as weaving the sticks together and securing them in place with pipe cleaners and string. Then it was time to decorate the wreath with herbs and different coloured leaves. It looks fantastic hanging up in the Nursery.
This week the children had great fun using paint in different ways. They used paintbrushes, small mops, their hands and were very excited when they discovered red and blue made purple! They then discovered that many different colours are made on the light box with colour paddles. The children have also been very busy collecting twigs in the garden, painting them with white paint and glitter to make a twig Christmas tree which they will decorate over the coming weeks.
It's been another lovely Autumnal week at the Lawns. The children have loved spending time in the garden.
There was great excitement when a ladybird was found by one of the children in the sand.
The children explored and investigated the pumpkins; using them in different ways. They had great fun hammering golf tees in the skin and making holes with various tools. The pumpkins were also used in the potions area where the children scooped out the flesh and mixed the seeds.
