Autumn Fun



Today was a beautiful autumn day and over lunchtime a group of children developed their own fall day! They had to work together to get the leaves in a big enough pile, take turns, support one another and challenge themselves to have the courage to take the plunge. What fun!

Note to your teacher - was there rubber matting under that? OSH compliant fun ;)

Wow kids. What fun!

When I share this post with my Year Twos tomorrow, I know they're going to be jealous for two reasons - 1) they're not allowed to climb the trees in their playground and 2) - we don't have any autumn leaves, it's just too warm here in Brisbane.

Watching you certainly took me back to my tree-climbing days, many years ago - thank you for the memories.

Wow! I wish I was allowed to do that at my school. We didn't have a tree that gave enough leaves.
You could make a cool leaf collage with all those leaves.

It is so cool to watch isn't it. I did have a go but I ran up to it, I didn't climb the tree and do it. It was fun. Tyler must have liked it because if you look closely you can see he is smiling.

Have a good day Auttum Funning
