The return to outdoor nursery after the Easter Break saw the children exploring the area with new eyes. With every tree now fully covered with leaves, there was a lovely canopy over the area creating a changing pattern of colours and lights which sparked the children's imaginations. It also provided a good deal of shade in what turned out to be a lovely warm summer for the most part.
Higher temperatures gave the children opportunities to explore how the environment changed when water was scarce and the the sun shone in abundance. What were previously sloppy mud patches became dry, cracked surfaces and before long the grassy areas began to dry up and shrivel!
