In the Nursery garden, we are lucky enough to have a huge walnut tree. Once the children collected the walnuts that had already dropped off the tree we challenged them to think of a way that they could get even more.

They came up with lots of ideas, including sending teachers to climb up the tree to collect them! They also tried throwing some balls up into the branches. In the end, the teachers attached string around the branches and the children worked together to pull the string and shake the walnuts off the branches. There were screams of delight as the children ran up and down the hill, collecting all the walnuts that had fallen.

Once satisfied that they had gathered enough walnuts, the children set about finding ways to crack them open. They stamped on them, used rocks to hit them, and we even brought them inside and used the mallets to break them open. It was fantastic to see the children come up with their own ideas and then collaborate to achieve what they set out to do.
