Recently I was visiting the The Lost Gardens of Heligan. In the entrance, was the beautiful hanging decoration.
Upon closer inspection, it contained a range of autumn finds:
Beside the hanging decoration was a notice which asked visitors to collect the colours of autumn as they walked around the garden. Everyone was free to add a leaf or something special to the hanging to create a unique piece of art.
It was a simple act and a lovely way of celebrating this beautiful season. It could work well for classes that are participating in woodland sessions or other regular activities in nature. It’s also a way of reminding children about their outdoor experience or walk and can aid children recall what happened especially if revisited a few days later.
What would your class create?
