Leaf Man

Robins were inspired to get creative and make their own collages using natural objects from our Autumn collection after enjoying the beautiful pictures in ‘Leaf Man’ by Lois Ehlert – conkers make the best goggly eyes! We continued our appreciation of the Autumn season on our adventure walk which led us to the playing fields where the children went leaf hunting. There were so many fallen apples that the children lined them up to practise their counting skills then made a game rolling them down the slide to see whose would roll the furthest. Robins have begun learning letter sounds this week and using their whiteboard pens to practise their froggy fingers hold to write the letter shapes. Mrs Lacey has used her smiley face stamper in lots of sound books for those children who also had a go at home – well done to all those budding writers! Their first full week has given Robins a host of new experiences including PE, French, baking, playing percussion instruments and even a trip to the Literature Festival – I think they deserve a rest this weekend ready for plenty more fun and learning next week!
