Winter is Coming!
We've noticed that our outside school environment is changing; the leaves on the trees are changing colour and with the wind last week, we watched them begin to float to the floor. We have collected leaves and looked at all the different colours. We made autumn leaf line drawings and printed with leaves too; we even scrunched up dry leaves and used them in our collages of squirrels and hedgehogs. We are keeping a 'seasonal cloud diary' (it's been fun laying down on the playground and looking at the clouds) and so far there have been lots of stratus clouds- 'low and grey, they can mean it's rain today'. We have also made anemometers so we can measure how much wind is in each of our seasons across the school year. Next, we're going to make a rain gauge. It will be interesting and fun to compare what we find out in our seasonal science lessons.
