October at Oak Valley

We have had a lot of fun this month at Oak Valley.

October started with Babies doing their tummy time sessions with lots of added sensory activities. They thoroughly enjoyed mark-making with paint brushes & water which helped in the development of their fine motor control skills.

Pre-School embraced the Autumnal weather & went on a nature walk; the children collected conkers, pine cones & leaves to explore in their investigation area.

We’ve had a high level of rain throughout the month which, in turn, created lots of mud & puddles. Our children wrapped up in their waterproofs & made the most of the opportunities the weather offered. The children’s favourite activities included a homemade slip & slide, & making apparatus to measure the rainfall!

Rising 3’s & Pre-School enjoyed our termly Mini Movez session with lots of dancing, rhythmic movement & songs. We enjoyed copying the actions, then making our own routines up.

With Halloween approaching, we ventured to the shop to buy pumpkins.The children made their own designs & carved their pumpkins with various tools. In addition to this, we had a Halloween workshop for parents. We made potions, wore fancy dress & played in jelly. We finished the day off with a go in our photo booth. Thank you to everyone who attended. We hope you enjoyed it as much as us!
