Session 1 – Den Building

Exploring Autumn what changes can we see?






What Autumn treasure can we find?

We discussed the different things we had found, we looked at colour, shape,size , texture etc.

Thinking about where the characters in the story may live in the woods.What materials do we think they would use?What shape would it be?On the ground,under the ground maybe up a tree!

We work together to plan and build our dens.

Using our fine and gross motor skills to handle a variety of different tools and materials safely with care and control.

What do we know about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things.





Working together -What resources do we need? What shape den shall we build? How do we build safely?









We are learning to use a selection of tools, handling them with care.












It was great fun building dens ,time for a will earned hot chocolate.
