We are learning all about autumn.

This half term, we’ll visit a local woodland to observe and experience the enchanting autumnal environment, collecting autumn treasures as we crunch through piles of fallen leaves. Back in the classroom, we’ll sort our treasures into different categories, create land art, and dry and flatten leaves to decorate. We’ll learn about woodland animals and migration through movement and discuss the features that allow animals to survive through winter. In our literacy lessons, we’ll snuggle up and listen to autumnal stories and write woodland tales. In mathematics, we’ll thread and count conkers and dried fruit and collect and order sticks of different lengths. We’ll roll up our sleeves to make a clay owl or hedgehog, autumn-scented play dough, a delicious harvest soup and ‘squirrel muffins’ for our forest friends. Outside once more, we’ll observe food as it decays over time and go on a hedgerow hunt for blackberries. How will they smell and feel?

 

Here are some ideas to help support your child at home…

Woodlands are wonderful! Why not explore a local woodland together to build a fairy house using twigs, leaves, nuts and berries? You could also cook some fabulous autumnal recipes such as pumpkin soup or toffee apple cakes. Alternatively, set up a mud kitchen in your garden. What ingredients from the garden can you mix together to create an autumn potion?
