Chestnut Class have had a very busy start to the term. We have been learning all about the Autumn season. Our book focus has been all about Isaac the Hedgehog in Wide Awake Hedgehog. We have talked lots about hibernation and what animals need to do before they hibernate and we have discovered that some animals fly to warmer places and migrate for the winter.
The children in Chestnut Class enjoyed an Autumn Scavenger Hunt where we found a Christmas ELF!!! We recorded all of the different signs of autumn we could see and talked about why we maybe couldn’t find certain objects (pinecones, acorns and berries…. we think the squirrels have already eaten them).
We collected small, thin sticks ready to create our own hedgehogs, like Isaac, using clay. The children explored clay and carefully used the tools to model their hedgehog, even cutting the sticks to the sizes they wanted.
