Autumn Prep!


As we approach the Autumn season we get the children prepared for harvest time as we talk about how we grow vegetables, where they come from and how they need to be prepared before eating.

The children learn a lot about food through seeing the preparation and remember experiences from home as well as different cultures and traditions. The children each brought different vegetables into nursery and we all worked together and prepared them to make our soup.

They used their fine motor skills to cut up the veg and practiced good health and hygiene through washing and cleaning it. Within each stage the children were highly engrossed and very talkative about what the soup would taste like and which herbs they wanted to add.

Once we cooked the soup the children then used their independence and self serve skills to taste their creation. They talked about how the soup helped them to warm up on the autumn days as we ate it around the fire pit in the garden.

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
