This week in nursery

This week in nursery the children have been exploring our autumn finds in the garden including conkers, leaves, acorns and apples. We have been collecting them into a big pile, developing our language skills of the different objects we found and then have begun to sort them by object. With the apples we collected the children helped to make apple cake which was very yummy! We were developing our understanding of the process of making a cake, ingredients to use and how to follow the steps of a recipe. The children observed their cake bake and enjoyed tasting it with their friends. There has been lots of interest in exploring the texture of play dough and using cutters, rolling pins and gems to make marks in the dough. We have started to introduce and practice our Harvest songs.
