This week we are celebrating the start of Autumn and the autumn equinox. We will be making apple sauce, pumpkin whoopie pies ( ummm, we've waited all year for these), and candles.
Circle time is teaching us some new autumn songs to sing while we work on our projects.
Yellow the Bracken- Florence Hoatson, from The Singing Year
Yellow is the bracken (circle in a ring)
Golden the sheaves,
Rosy the apples,
Crimson the leaves,
Mist on the hillside, ( one hand sweeps horizontally, the other stretches to clouds)
Clouds grey and white,
Autumn good morning! (bow to the autumn, hands together by cheek for summer)
The story of Owl and Duck from The Yoga Zoo
story and poses
Friday we will do an Owl listen and see game.
Round the House ( I cant remember where I got this one)
Round the house,
Round the trees,
Round the woods,
With the rustling leaves,
Round the tree trunk,
Round the stem,
Round about and home again.
