A Walk to the Church

As part of early years planning, we like to enable the children to take part in local visits and walks in the local community to support children’s knowledge, understanding and experiences.

The children had made a poppy wreath at preschool, using cupcake cases, painted with red paint and sprinkled with tea leaves. We then walked through the village to place our poppy wreath inside the church and look at the other poppy displays.

The children used their senses to explore their surroundings, looking and listening to cross the road safely. They were so good at holding hands and walking the distance to the church and back. Also displaying good listening and looking skills while inside the church.

We hope to visit again in December to see the church decorated for the Christmas celebrations.
