Squirrels Harvest week at Hednesford Nursery!
We celebrated Harvest this week, developing us physically with sensory mark making, using paint to print vegetables, and manipulating playdough to create hedgehogs. Beetroot, parsnip, swede and leek were some of the new words we learned as we looked at a selection of harvest vegetables. We sang ‘Five little peas in a pea pod pressed’, and investigated real peas in their pods. “Look, they big, one, two, three, four”. Outside we had pumpkins in our mud kitchen, “It’s heavy, going to cook it”, but would it fit in the saucepan? “It’s too big”. And for snack we tried some new foods; plums, figs, sugar snaps and pumpkin seeds. “More, more”.
