Second Class room 10 have been learning all about autumn! We have been learning about plants and animals in our local area. We went on a nature trail around our school grounds and used the iPads to take pictures of signs of autumn. We collected different types of leaves, acorns and other materials. When we went back to the classroom we looked closely at the materials we collected and studied the photographs that had been taken. We also did some leaf rubbings! It was a fun day! We love autumn :)
