As part of our Science Topic: Seasons, Reception and Key Stage 1 chose a lovely Autumn day and went for a walk to explore Autumn in more detail. Here children worked in pairs to discuss the autumn features they could see. We also collected autumn items such as colourful leaves, cones and any natural material that represented autumn.
Children then used these items to make autumn collages in Art.
As part of our science topic: Weather, we made rain collectors. This is so we could measure how much rain fall occurred over September. Children worked hard putting carefully placed lines of their rain collectors so that they could easily measure the amount of rain in the jar. Pupils also carefully selected places outside in our courtyard which they felt would be suitable for our rain collection.
We left our rain collectors for one week before revisiting them to observe how much rain had been collected in our jars.
We enjoyed looking very much like scientist with our clipboards!
