The two themes we explored for October were Autumn and Halloween. Take a look at all the fun activities we got stuck in to. We kicked off the autumn theme by making some lovely Autumn colored Pom Pom trees.
Our theme song was The Scarecrow Song which we loved and were very good at doing our actions to it.
We made beautiful hedgehogs from lovely colored silk leaves.
We made stained glass leaves with tissue paper.
We used leaves for a matching activity.
We used confers to make some lovely shake art Autumn leaves for our display.
We went for a nature walk to find signs of Autumn and picked up some lovely leaves which we brought back to class and did some leaf rubbings with crayons.

Room 4 had fun settling in and getting to know each other for the month of September. We welcomed Caiden, Christian, Rosanna and Victor who are new to our School this year and we welcome Aisling back after the summer holidays.
