June begins with pressing your flower collection that will be revisited at the end of the month. Lots of small things to do with an emphasis on being outside and celebrating the season.
Traditionally July is seen as the beginning of a holiday season that may take you to new areas. An introduction of tidal patterns if you are at the seaside. More nature crafts and games. Good time for studying tree leaves and try to make them long days outside.
In August we pick up on noticing the change in times of the sunset from last month, and the caterpillar incubation. Revisit our understanding of tidal patterns and generally try to enjoy active pursuits outside.
In September start collecting the fallen leaves of the past season and look forward to the promise of nature that will come with the next year’s season in the new buds or the migrating habits of the birds. This time of year is good for spotting shapes in seed pods too.
Throughout October there are lots of autumn crafts and observations with conkers and pine cones and beech nuts. throughout the October we observe the shapes of the moon and make a comparison of the shapes at the end of the month
November encourages the chance to feel the change in the air temperature from September’s. Raise our eyes skyward for glimpses of the star constellations. Enjoy taking hot food and drinks outside.
December is shaped by the move through advent and also several christmas decorations to make. Introduction of hexagonal geometry in snowflakes and a few small jobs to be active outside.
January has plenty of encouragements to stay physical at this dark time of the year and a few crafts to bring indoors. Also beginning our study of bird habits by observing and putting out food.
In February we start looking out for the early signs of spring and animals moving about. Prompts to notice the changing light levels and sun. Candlemas poems. Begin making plans for the growing season.
With March a flurry of spring can come suddenly, plenty of prompts to look out for. First intro of an awareness of shapes in the daffodil at this time of year and few nature games to get you outside.
