Why do leaves turn crispy?
October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came - The Chestnuts, Oaks and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
This week we read the story of The Scarecrow. Look at the scarecrows we made to stop the birds from eating our seeds. We even dressed ourselves up as scarecrows!
Today we had a wonderful time looking for signs of Autumn in Queen's Park. Thank you to the parents who came along to join us. Next time you are out why not search for some of these items -
leaves seeds pine cones acorns twigs squirrels conkers
We have been learning these words
hibernate Autumn crops harvest migrate
Ask your child to tell you about each word. Help them to understand the meaning of each word. You could use story books, the internet, pictures or real life experiences to help.
