Reception had an exciting morning discovering the beauty of Autumn when they visited Hartshill Hayes Country Park.
The children travelled by coach which in itself was an exciting experience for them! Once we arrived at the park we set off for a long walk. Armed with bags the children collected lots of leaves noticing and naming the colours as they went. They were very keen to run through the wood with their ‘Autumn’ checklist ticking off what they had spotted.
We looked for squirrels and were lucky to spot two foraging in the leaves. The children discovered two dens made of sticks and enjoyed hiding inside and discussing how to make one.
When we arrived back at school the children painted pictures, sorted leaves and following a class discussion demonstrated their knowledge and understanding of the change in seasons.
