Winter fun

Winter never loses it fascination, as children we love the leaves scattered over the lawn and gardens, it is a time to be playful with nature.  Collecting the leaves is fun when it is shared and then the job of putting them on the garden to compost down is real work.
Exploring how leaves move through the air as we toss them above our heads and shriek as they flutter down over us is science and maths in action.
We begin to notice the bare trees, the colours in the fallen leaves and the birds looking for food, they are nibbling away at the pears that have fallen from our pear tree and we begin to have discussions about making bird feeders again.
WINTER IS FUN AND IT BRINGS NEW ADVENTURES.
