This week in Year 1 we put on our coats and headed out into the school grounds to become ACE Scientists. Our aim? To make careful scientific observations. Before we set off we thought about what we already knew about the seasons, particularly Autumn. The children came up with ideas such as, ‘The leaves are changing colour,’ and ‘The leaves are turning red, yellow, brown and orange’.
During our walk the children were excited to see that many of the trees had leaves that had changed colour. We also found lots of leaves on the floor and collected some to explore in more detail. We noticed that not all the trees had leaves that were changing colour and that these called evergreen trees.
