First half term Autumn 2021
This half term we have been learning about celebrations - Birthdays, Autumn and Harvest.
We looked at what happens at Autumn time, the changes to the environment and what harvest means. We love singing our 'Red leaves falling' song! We also enjoyed exploring Pumpkins and their lifecycle! Look at our pictures below!
As part of our learning we loved sharing the stories: It's my Birthday by Helen Oxenbury, Kipper's Birthday by Mick Inkpen and The Little Red Hen.
