Learning about Autumn in Reception class

It all started with Aliyar’s fascination with spiders and spiderwebs. We caught some spiders in bug jars and looked at marking, and patterns. Aliyar was fascinated when we had to release the spiders and they scuttled away. We then looked at some autumn treasures and later went on a very long walk collecting conkers, leaves, acorns and hips. On the way, we met a beautiful caterpillar, hunted for squirrels and went to visit the chickens in the nature garden.
