Headteacher's Lunchtime Award: Kuba
It's got acorns, seed heads and brown leaves. I made a berry and it fell down into my pond.
In my garden there is an acorn, a river, a mushroom, berries, a rosehip berry and a pine cone. I liked making my Autumn garden.
It's a forest. It's dead leaves because it's Autumn. I made some little red berries. The leaves are dead and brown.
I made a mushroom. I always find mushrooms in Autumn. There's an acorn, a big fruit tree, an apple, blackberries on every fruit tree. I have a golden lake.
