We have been learning all about autumn and observing the seasonal changes. Before the half-term break, we enjoyed our autumn walk to Sheen Common, where we found a range of different leaves, mushrooms and moss. We also made and ate our own pumpkin soup. We were impressed with the children's fine motor skills during the preparation of the vegetables and were delighted with how many stated that it was 'the best soup ever'.
Since we have been back in school, we have also learnt all about colour mixing and choosing colours fit for purpose. We each selected an autumn leaf, sketched it carefully and then mixed paints to recreate its colour. This artwork will be our first piece in our new art sketch books! The children are very proud of their work.
