Mounatin - leaf lanternsPupils in Mountain class (Years 1 and 2) have begun a science project about the changing seasons which is also helping them explore the Buddhist concepts of change and impermanence.

“Mountain class are being ‘Mindful of Change’ and we have been on a field trip to Stanmer Park in Brighton to witness the changing seasons and the way the weather affects animals and plants.The children looked for evidence of animals preparing for the change of season and noted the colour changes of the leaves, and they are making mandalas and leaf lanterns from natural resources.”
