Leaf Man

A Leaf Man’s got to go where the wind blows…Lois Ehlert’s story about ‘Leaf Man’ inspired lots of Autumnal activities this week in Robins. We made Autumn trees using hand and finger painting, created leaf men collages, drew journey maps to show where he travelled in the wind and made leaf rubbings. In maths we used our collection of Autumn objects to practise sorting in different ways. ‘The Button Box’ by Margaret Reid told us the story of a little boy who loved to sort through his Grandmother’s buttons- we did the same with my mother’s button box and discovered the shiny buttons were everyone’s favourites as they looked like jewels.
