Examining Autumn

Yesterday afternoon, we went out to examine Autumn through the senses of sight, hearing, smell and touch. We examined acorns and opened them up to see what they were like inside. We looked at the colour of the falling leaves and discovered what they felt like when we held and crushed them. We smelt and had a go at describing the smell of grass and of flowers we found. We also found several different types of mushrooms (we didn’t touch these!), but we did look at them closely to see what we thought about their strange shapes.
