Autumn Leaves! 

To represent the colours of autumn, we first went on a nature walk through our school grounds to see the changing colours of the leaves.  We then outlined our leaves in wax crayon and painted them in watered down paint; the paint does not penetrate the wax and gives the leaf a more vivid look.  We then cut out our leaves and made four trees –  a sycamore, a horse chestnut, an oak, and a beech tree, just like the giant beech in our front yard!
