Why do squirrels hide their nuts?
Into the woods we go! Why do squirrels hide their nuts? Why do hedgehogs hibernate? It's time to explore the seasonal changes in the natural world during Autumn and Winter.
This half term, we'll learn about woodland animals and migration through movement and discuss features that allow animals to survive through Winter. In our literacy lessons, we'll snuggle up and listen to autumnal stories and write woodland tales. In maths, we'll thread and count conkers and order sticks of different lengths. We'll roll up our sleeves to make a clay owl or hedgehog, Autumn-scented play dough and 'squirrel muffins' for our forest friends.
Mrs Williams will visit our school and lead an Outdoor Learning session on Thursday 3rd October so please ensure that your child is appropriately dressed for the weather!
You are warmly invited to join us for an Autumnal 'Stay and Play' session at the end of our topic on Tuesday 22nd October at 9.00-9.45am.
How you can help at home
Woodlands are wonderful! Why not explore a local woodland together to build a fairy house using twigs, leaves and nuts? You could also cook some fabulous autumnal recipes such as pumpkin soup or toffee apple cakes. Alternatively, set up a mud kitchen in your garden. What ingredients from the garden can you mix together to create an Autumn potion?
