Welcome to Explorers. Our teacher is called Mrs Nicholl and Mrs Cooke and Miss Crooks are our teaching assistants.

The children are very excited about their new topic, “Why Do Leaves Go Crispy?”

This topic will develop the children’s curiosity, understanding, knowledge and imagination about Autumn.

We will be learning about:

  • The way plants and animals adapt to the changing seasons;
  • Hibernation and the way that animals and birds prepare for winter;
  • How to use simple scientific equipment to make observations about autumn colours;
  • Fruits and seeds.


  • Image result for autumn art kidsGo for a walk around the local park collecting leaves and conkers.

  • Paint pictures using Autumn colours.
  • Share an Autumn story.
  • Look at Autumn photos.
