It’s been ‘raining’ conkers in our Nursery garden!


The conkers are falling from our horse chestnut tree in their hundreds!  The children have been rushing out each morning this week to find out how many have dropped over-night!  We have collected bucket-loads every day!  Look what we have been doing with them.


Using them for Maths games:

Estimating and checking – we counted the conkers into sets of ten and found that we did actually have more than one hundred!

Trying out some ‘conker art’!

Tidying them up  – they are very ‘wobbly’ to walk on!  Our sand-pit diggers and trucks have been very busy!
