Autumn leaves found by nursery and reception children on an outdoor walk

Planning resources and outdoor activity ideas to help young learners explore seasonal changes

As sad as you may be to see summer go, why not make the most of the seasonal changes by bringing them into the classroom? We’ve brought together top resources to help you plan learning opportunities both in and outdoors.
