25.09.18 Autumn is in the air...

This week Reception have been exploring the signs of Autumn. We have started the week exploring natural Autumnal objects such as pine cones, conkers and fallen leaves. Using these textured objects we have been printing using them to explore the patterns that they make. 
We went on an Autumn walk on Friday to explore the signs of Autumn around us. We went up on to the school field and saw trees of all different colours. We then warmed up back in the classroom with nice warm porridge and raisins for our afternoon snack. 
A hedgehog house was kindly donated to Sandy Hill Academy. This fuelled an interest in to hedgehogs this week and we found out many facts about them. We then thought about a good place to keep it in the school and we placed it in a quiet area in the vegetable garden. Fingers crossed we have a resident through the winter months.
