With autumn now well established and the majority of the trees finally losing their leaves, I took the children out to explore the shapes, sounds, colours and textures of the season.
There is something ever so satisfying about stomping through rustling crunchy leaves. We seem to have had little rain this autumn so they have not mulched down into a squelchy layer, instead mantaining their shape and crispness.
The riot of colour is starting to dull as the older leaves are now decidedly brown but the top ones are bright yellow with orange and red tones.
We took our time looking for the different shape and leaves, collecting some to take home. I then created a colour and shape wheel to show some of the diversity of the season.
