It's definitely autumnal here now, so yesterday the children all had fun making pictures with fallen leaves we had collected over the past week.
First Louise told them a little bit about the job of the leaf, why they change colour and showed them a chart of lots of different types of leaves found in England .
Then the children all chose an activity and got to work!
First Hannah tried Leaf Rubbing,
Then she and her friend Melissa designed and painted a huge tree on a roll of craft card, it will eventually be decorated with leaves when it has had time to dry.
And finally she moved on to the leaf pictures
and made a beautiful woodland scene.
After the craft it was time for a picnic lunch and then lots of free play in the sunshine!
