The Year 5’s have spent the rainy days this week collecting various autumn leaves from the school gardens.  They have looked closely at the leaves through magnifying glasses to visually understand the intrigate detail of each leaf.  The leaves were then pressed into terracotta clay and rolled flat.  When the leaves were removed from the clay a wonderful impression of each leaf was left in the clay.  We will paint these leaves next wet day and connect them to an Autumn Story Board.
