The leaves on the trees are beginning to turn orange and gold and the mud is beginning to squelch under foot… Autumn has definitely arrived at Hilltop. Schools have been enjoying this change in the weather and have been honing their survival skills, making campfires out of the wood nestled amongst the rhododendron bushes to make a tasty hot chocolate and toast, the key to all survival situations… a marshmallow or two! Smelling of smoke from this often lost skill, they then can do a bug hunt in the woodland area, finding crazy looking caterpillars and Halloween special spiders! In addition to this, Hilltop also have a number of butterflies attempting to hibernate for the winter in one of the field studies equipment sheds. Wish them a warm and safe winter in there, so when spring comes they can fly again in the sunshine!
