We enjoyed guessing the fruit from this weeks rhyme…when we found out it was a plum we all tasted them and then completed a pictograms to show how many people did and didn’t like them.
Autumn leaves are falling
We enjoyed an Autumn walk around the school grounds. We stopped to look at the apple trees and brought some back which the P1s used to make apple printing patterns.
We have also been painting Autumn trees to display in our classroom and investigating the things we found on our walk. We collected lots of sticks and have been wrapping them up in autumn coloured oil to keep them warm and cosy.
