Environment

What are we learning? 

We are observing how the environment around us changes across the seasons developing our understanding of appropriate outdoor clothing. How does autumn look? What can we see? How do the trees look? What colours are the leaves? What is on the ground? How is the weather? What specific activities and occasions do we celebrate?  

Activities to do at home:

•          Go outside, collect leaves and other autumnal items

•          Make a collage of what you have found

•          Make Autumn pictures and patterns

•          Use paint to paint the leave and create printing art

•          Use the animal outline to design your own lion or squirrel- what do the leaves look like? What colour are they? Collect leaves and design your own animal.

•          Use the autumn checklist to go on an autumn treasure hunt, what can you find? 

Maybe take photos of what you have done to bring into school and share with everyone or email to me on mkapsi@mhs.bfet.uk.
