Autumn at the kindergarten


The two to four year-olds have embraced autumn at Wimborne Kindergarten, making great use of their outdoor space.

They have been using their imagination building with crates, planks and tyres to create their own vehicles, and helping each other to complete their own obstacle course.
All the children love water play and they experiment with pouring, sieving, filling and emptying containers – it’s always a busy area in the garden.
The children have also been investigating the pumpkins and gourds, exploring their smell, texture and colours. They have enjoyed the many autumn displays in Wimborne town centre on their walks and visits to the local library. The children particularly love their visits to the Wimborne Community Garden which adjoins the Kindergarten.

They have used foraged blackberries from the Kindergarten’s own hedgerow and collected fallen apples to make their very own Gruffalo crumble and they have baked gingerbread men after reading the story. The leftover apples were used to create wonderful prints in Autumn hues!
As the days get colder the children will continue to use the outdoor space as a free-flow facility, enabling the children to choose to learn inside or outdoors whatever the weather.
