The children at Alcester have had a busy few weeks in the run up to half term, exploring the change in seasons and sharing their current interests with their friends – dinosaurs have been very popular in TopDots! The BabyDots have been using their senses to explore paint, sensory bags, crispy autumn leaves and slimy pumpkins! Pre-school have been surprised to find a small fairy door by the toadstool in the garden which inspired lots of imaginative play and ponderings about where it came from and who lives behind it! They have also been using their maths skills to sort and compare the nature objects. Over half term the children have taken part in a variety of activities in the run up to Halloween, including making spooky spiders, cheeky pumpkins and ghoulish ghosts! We are looking forward to welcoming all of the children back next week for lots more fun exploring Bonfire night, followed by celebrating Children in Need (w/c 9th Nov) by getting dressed up in our spottiest clothes!
