Autumn 2: Why are there so many leaves on the ground?

The children will be learning about the seasons and different types of weather. We will discuss changes over time and how the world around us changes through the Autumn/Winter. We will explore the different colours of autumn leaves and how we can create new colours by mixing primary colours.


We will be focusing on the key texts: Percy the Park Keeper and Stickman.
