On Friday 28th October it was the turn of the year 2 pupils of Ms R Grima’s class to present their special assembly. The topic chosen was autumn. Here you will find some information the pupils shared with us together with some photos taken during this assembly. Below you will also find two video clips on the subject:
There are 4 seasons in a year. These are spring, summer, autumn and winter. Autumn starts on the 21st of September and ends on the 20th December. Autumn is also known as fall.
During autumn we celebrate Independence Day and Halloween. We also celebrate the feast of St. Martin.
During autumn the days become shorter and the nights become longer. The sunrise and sunset are about 12 hours apart everywhere on Earth. Air starts to get colder and we have thunder and lightning.
We start school during autumn. Olives are ready to be picked. Farmers harvest grapes and produce wine. Many birds, beetles and insects prepare to migrate to warmer countries. Some animals hibernate which means they go into a deep sleep. Some leaves start to change colour and they fall off the trees.
