After observing how autumn was beginning to cause changes at classroom in the woods, we wondered if things were starting to change in our local area. We read the story, ‘leaf man,’ and decided to take a trip to the park to have a look for him. We were pleased to see that the leaves were starting to change colour, and more excited that leaves were starting to fall from the trees, meaning we could collect them! We compared ‘brown crispy leaves’ to ‘soft, green,’ ones and also ‘red, bumpy leaves.’ We continued exploring and found lots of acorns, sticks and even mushrooms, but unfortunately, no leaf man!
We finished the morning with some physical excitement in the play area.
