         Our Topic this half-term is
         'Why do leaves go crispy?'
Crunch, scrunch and rustle. Why do leaves go crispy? What’s inside a conker? Let’s find out all about autumn in this exciting seasonal project.
This half term, we’ll go on an Autumn walk around the school ground to hunt for autumnal treasures.
Back in the classroom, we’ll watch what happens when frozen objects melt. Getting creative, we’ll press leaves into salt dough to make beautiful impressions, and we’ll explore mark-making by rolling conkers and rubbing leaves. Things could get messy in our mud kitchen when we use different tools to dig, mix and pour. We’ll also enjoy making marks in the mud. Our maths skills will help us to count conkers, and we’ll use them to make different numbers. Using sticks, we’ll explore lengths and use the language of size. It will be lovely to curl up in the reading corner to enjoy autumnal stories and poetry. After looking closely at seasonal fruits, adults will help us to prepare them. Working together, we’ll collect fallen leaves and have lots of fun playing with them! Using our senses, we’ll explore conkers and acorns, thinking about why they fall in autumn. At the end of the project, we’ll make a colourful and tasty harvest soup or fruity dessert, and read a book about autumn that will encourage us to reflect on our learning!
