This term we have been learning about the season Autumn and Harvest Festival.

 In the creative area we have been using autumn leaves and a variety of fruit and vegetables as printing tools to make repeated patterns. We have been learning how to mix our own paint using powder paint and water to make lots of different shades to represent autumn colours.

We have been making autumn leaf biscuits, apple pies using apples from the garden and soup for our Harvest Festival in the cooking area this term.

In the outdoor area we have been busy picking blackberries and raspberries which we crushed using a pestle and mortar to make special paint for our autumn pictures. We have also been weaving with stems and leaves to create mobiles and dream catchers to hang in the outdoor area.
