Ruma Kereru have had lots of fun learning about the seasons, especially Autumn. At Kaimai School we are very lucky to have beautiful big trees that look amazing during Autumn. We went out to the field one afternoon and had a blast building leaf mountains, making leaf angels, hiding in leaves and being leaf monsters and running and jumping into a big mountain of leaves. After that we painted leaves falling and blowing in the wind. The children learnt about mixing colours to make orange and brown and to use a paintbrush to create a background of swirling wind.
Check out this great blog from Twinkle. It has some wonderful ideas for activities at home relating to Autumn.https://www.twinkl.co.nz/blog/autumn-ideas-for-aotearoa?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter_2021-05-23_NZ_KeyStage1&utm_content=custom2
