'Why do leaves go crispy?'
Why do leaves go crispy? What is inside a conker? Explore these questions and more in this project about autumn.
This half term, we’ll visit our Conservation Area 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 clay to make beautiful impressions, and we’ll trace the patterns on 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.
