To launch our ‘Sensational Seasons’ topic we explored the physical effects of autumn. We went on an autumn treasure hunt and found lots of wonderful natural items such as leaves,twigs and pinecones and used these natural items to make our own autumn art. We explored the colours of the leaves and mixed paint to make our own autumn colours then painted leaves to create an autumn tree for our classroom. We examined the texture of leaves and bark through wax rubbing which created a range of interesting patterns. We looked at foods which are harvested during autumn and designed our own pumpkins.
