Autumn 1 term news!
During the first term of this academic year we were working on an “Autumn” theme. We have had lots of fun and learned how the environment around us changes during this season. I think one of our favourite activities was going for an Autumn walk and to the garden to pick some apples! I’m sure parents enjoyed the apples that our students counted and packed in little bags. They were delicious! We have also looked at Autumn colours in Art and made a beautiful picture of an Autumn tree using our fingers! In DT we were making bird feeders and looked how the lard changed its consistency from solid to liquid. To finish off the theme we used our senses to explore the pumpkins, carved them and painted! They looked amazing. Have a look at some of the pictures of our busy students, keep warm and wait for the next blog… Next term is Witches and Wizards Theme, exciting, which will lead us to Christmas!! 🎄🎅
