KS1 are studying the seasons. We have made tree pictures using finger-painting to depict the 4 seasons. Some of our children have been outside exploring our surroundings on a sound walk where we listened to sounds around us such as crunching leaves and squelching mud. We collected interesting things that we could see around us such leaves, conkers and berries. Once dried, we will be using them to make pictures and patterns in the classroom.
