Rainbow Room

When we had finished drawing our pictures we then used clay to copy the shape of the leaves we had drawn. We used modelling tools to outline the shape. We added the veins to the leaves using a modelling tool. Then we had to leave the clay to dry.
We have all chosen a leaf to focus on. We have drawn the leaf paying attention to the detail and colour of the leaf. We have researched the leaves we found and the majority have come from a tree called 'The Maple Tree'.  We have learnt why leaves fall from the trees in Autumn and change colour. It is because the tree controls and cuts off the water supply to the leaves during  the Autumn months.  The leaves then start to die. They change colour and drop from the trees.
As part of our English topic work we are focussing on Autumn. We have had a walk around the school grounds and looked at different leaves. We collected some and then used the internet to identify which trees they have fallen from.

We are starting our new topic work about 'Life Cycles'. Life cycles are the reproduction process of any living thing. This week we are looking and learning about a butterfly's life cycle. The life cycle starts with an egg. We learnt that butterflies lay their eggs on plants, underneath leaves. We drew a leaf and a butterfly egg and then looked at different materials we could use to make a leaf and an egg. When we had chosen our materials we labelled our diagram and made the first part of the life cycle for our display board outside the Rainbow Room.
