Exploring Autumn And Colours Around Us!

This week in the forest we went on a leaf scavenger hunt. The preschoolers each had a sheet with different types of leafs that they then had to find in the forest. They had to find big, long, little, fat, green, brown, yellow, nibbled, and curled leafs.  We took some leafs back to school to show our friends. We made leaf rubbings with the big leafs. After our hunt, we had some very delicious porridge that the KG students made on the fire.

Another exciting school week has gone by in the Oak classroom! Children were so curious to explore colours through science projects! They were amazed to see the result of mixing different colours and discovering a variety of shades at the end of the science experiment! What a fun way to explore various liquids and chemical reactions and colours around us!

This week in Linden we had fun exploring the different types of leafs our friends brought from the forest. We also took part in some name writing activities. We have been working hard at being independent. All of the Linden students can now dress and undress themselves for outside playtime. We have also been working hard at sharing and playing together nicely. We made some great towers in our block corner. Jakub built a tower that was taller than Hanna. 

Maple children were happy to have forest treasures brought back by the big children from the forest. Smaller children looked at the autumn leaves and colours and made a big leaf of their choice using colourful tea - sure paper. Children continued to build in construction center, and we were happy to see that they added a few characters to their play. We are looking forward to exploring fairy tales!

Reminder: Older students are going on a field trip to the forest at ‘Bumbu Kalniņš’ on Monday, 24th October. They will leave the school at 9:15 am and will come back at approximately 2:00 pm.

We look forward to our next unit of inquiry "Once Upon A Time", which will begin straight after our Autumn Break on Monday, October 24th (no school from 17-21 October). We wish all of you a wonderful Autumn break! See every one of you on the 24th of October!
