Last week was #outdoorclassroomday and while we would have wanted to mark the occasion and encourage taking lessons outside, weather warnings unfortunately put a stop to that. However, now the sun is (intermittently) shining on these autumn days – it is a perfect time to take your children outside and for them (and you) to enjoy and see all the beautiful colours nature has to offer at this gorgeous and transitional time of year.

Autumn lends itself brilliantly as a topic starter for many different subjects whether it be science and exploring the seasons and why leaves fall? Or creating collages in art or examining English and poetry motifs and why autumn is often used as a motif for change, transition, or abundance at harvest time.
