Autumn leaves with Cecilia's GG

Carrie's lesson 5 yr olds

I had a wonderful day getting to know Cecilia's Guardian Group, with only 9 girls and 1 boy visiting for an hour.

We started the day doing observational drawings of Oak leaves and discussed the differences between evergreen and deciduous trees. Then we read 'Little Tree' by Loren Long, a lovely story about not letting go and growing!

Then it was time for the class to make their own tree using a combination of watercolour paints and relief printing with polystyrene blocks for the leaves. With so few children, we were able to do multi coloured prints and use a range of autumnal colours with great results.

We finished the day drawing stained glass window designs.
