Day 1 & 2
Children learn through play, finding out, exploring, watching and through the copying of others.
Any activities and opportunities you provide are all learning experiences for your child.
Exposure to lots of talk, conversations, books, games and day to day experiences are all valuable to the developing child.
As you are aware, this terms topic is Why do leaves go crispy? Below are a few activities you could try over the next couple of days.
We are now in the season of Autumn! Talk with your grown up about Autumn and the other seasons in the year. What are the signs that Autumn is here? Look out of the window or
go into the garden, can you see, hear, smell or feel that Autumn has arrived?
You could take some pictures or draw some pictures about the signs of Autumn.
If you can, collect some items from the garden. (They don't have to be Autumny!)
Sort your collection by colour, shape, size etc.
Try counting the objects, can you give your grown up two? Can you give them five?
Remember it's easier if you put the objects in a line and use your counting finger!
Look at the colours of Autumn-reds, yellows, oranges and browns. If you have any crayons or
paints use the Autumn colours to create some artwork.
If you can, collect some Autumn leaves from your garden. Paint and print with leaves, try some

Jumble them up and try again.
What is the sound at the beginning of your name? What does it look like? Is it a curly letter or a
Story time! Choose a book to share together. How do we hold a book? Can you turn the pages
carefully? You could go on YouTube and watch a story too!
We enjoy the story of Pumpkin Soup by Jill Cooper in Nursery. Have a chat about the different characters in the story, their appearance, their soup making job and their feelings throughout the story.
