We have had lots of fun this half term exploring the changes that happen in Autumn. We have been learning how to be good friends and all about people who help us where we need help. We have read many exciting books and have tried so hard with our writing and reading. We have enjoyed seeing the changes that have happened to the trees and we have explored how different birds and animals survive throughout the cold, winter months. We have been looking at how different foods last longer than others and deciding which foods would be good to feed the animals during the long winter. We have used seeds and nuts to make Squirrel muffins. We hope they enjoy eating them!
