Poems:

‘Autumn leaves are falling down’

Autumn leaves are falling down,
falling down, falling down.
Let’s rake them all.
Let’s rake them into a great big pile,
a great big pile, a great big pile.
Now all jump in!

‘Ten brown chestnuts’

Ten brown chestnuts hanging on a tree
Five for you and five for me
I am shaking the tree right now
The chestnuts are falling down
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10!

Songs:

‘Some call it autumn.’

Some call it autumn. Some call it fall.
Some say, this season is the best of all.
Look all around and you will find
that fall is here. Just look for the signs

See red and yellow, orange and brown.
Bright coloured leaves are falling to the ground.
Look all around and you will find
that fall is here. Just look for the signs.

Squirrels are ready. They’re nice and fat.
Soon they’ll be taking a long winter’s nap.
Look all around and you will find
that fall is here. Just look for the signs.

The birds are leaving, butterflies, too.
They won’t be back until the winter’s through.
Look all around and you will find
that fall is here. Just look for the signs.

The days are shorter. The nights are long.
The weather’s cooler and the wind is strong.
Look all around and you will find
that fall is here. Just look for the signs.

Some call it autumn, some call it fall
Some say this season is the best of all
Look all around and you will find
that fall is here. Just look for the signs.
