Autumn is here and in Beaumont Hospital School we are learning about the changes it brings to our environment.
Amiee wrote a short story about some of the things that happen in Autumn.
IT WAS A COLD AUTUMN DAY. HEDGEHOGS MAKE NICE WARM BEDS OUT OF LEAVES. THEY HIBERNATE. THE SWALLOWS MIGRATE. THE LEAVES CHANGE COLOUR AND FALL TO THE GROUND. THE BEARS AND SQUIRELS GATHER FOOD FOR THE COLD WINTER DAYS.
Here is a photo of a lovely hedgehog that Aimee made using a Paper plate and straws.
We decided to print the information we have learnt about Autumn on some leaves using beautiful Autumn colours. Our Autumn board is starting to shape up nicely!
Alan in Cappagh hospital also added to our post about Autumn. Here are a few of the facts Alan typed up for us:
In Autumn it gets windy and cold. In Autumn the leaves fall off the trees. When farmers grow their crops they sometimes use a scarecrow to stop the birds eating the crops.
Mathew and Niamh wrote a lovely Acrostic poem. An Acrostic poem uses the letters in a topic word to begin each line. The lines of the poem should describe the topic.
Autumn is a colourful season.
Unique colours on the trees.
The squirrels and hedgehogs hibernate.
Under the trees the hedgehog hibernates.
Many birds migrate.
Nature at her best.
Have a go at writing your own Acrostic poem!
Katie, Niamh and Mathew learnt about Pointillism in Art class. They had a look at some famous pieces of Art done by George Seurat using Pointillism. Pointillism is a style of art where the artist uses only dots. Pointillism requires a lot of patience!
Katie, Niamh and Mathew then made their own Autumn scene using Pointillism. They used the dots to represent the fallen Autumn leaves.
