We have been busy exploring and learning all sorts of things this term.
Here are just a few of our favourites so far...
We have been hunting for signs of autumn during our Forest Friday sessions and thinking about why the things we found tell us that autumn is here. Lots of us found leaves and had brilliant ideas about why the leaves change colour and fall of the trees in autumn. We took inspiration from the things we found to help us make our own collage leaves to go on our class autumn display. Everyone chose their colours very carefully to make sure they looked just right on our tree.
As part of our work on the story of The Little Red Hen, we role played the story to help us sequence the events, using character crowns to help us get into character. We also used the sounds we have been learning in phonics to help us have a go at writing the names of some of the characters. We thought about which of our sounds each name started with, then used our magnetic letters to help us segment the rest of the sounds before having a go at writing the letters for ourselves. Have a look and see how we got on - we can write words already!
We also did just what the Little Red Hen did and made some delicious bread, though we made sure we all helped each other because we didn't think it was very kind of the lazy dog, the sleepy cat and the noisy duck not to help their friend at all.
Just before half term, we were so excited to have some of our grown ups in for a special Harvest celebration. Everyone spent the afternoon making autumn themed crafts together before we sang some special Harvest songs to our grown ups.
