Class 1 study Autumn

As part of our seasons and weather topic, the children went into forest to find signs of autumn and changes that occur in the environment as the seasons change. They took leaf charts from naturegrid with them and as they found different leaves they matched them to the ones on their chart to see what tree they had come from. In the next session; when we had moved onto weather; we took kites into the woodland and flew them. This had varying degrees of success but it gave us the opportunity to then talk about what conditions are needed to fly a kite successfully. It also gave us the opportunity to talk about safety before flying a kite.
