Year 1 enjoyed an autumnal day at Gibside, as part of their science topic, ‘Seasonal Change’. They searched for indications of the arrival of autumn and collected leaves, acorns, and conkers to bring back to the classroom. Using the natural materials surrounding them, they engaged in creating autumn crowns, picture frames, and stick creatures.
After lunch we had a lovely walk through the walled garden where we saw pumpkins and apples growing.
Despite the slight chill in the air, Year 1 made the most of their experience and were rewarded with a visit to the play area to celebrate their exceptional efforts throughout the term.
Thank you to all of the parent helpers for making this trip possible.
