This week we have explored colour through mark making.
We talked about our favourite colours and found out which colour was the most popular by voting with pine cones.
We completed Mrs Mitchell's teacher challenge and found lots of things in our classroom in our favourite colour.
We have started exploring Christmas!
We have been wrapping presents, making Christmas cards and singing Christmas songs.
This week we started making our classroom festive ready for Christmas. We have decorated our Christmas tree and started making our Christmas tree decorations.
This week we have been learning about owls. We built nests for them using straw and feathers to keep them warm. We talked about what owls like to eat and how they find their food. We were very interested in birds, so we made bird feeders to hang in our gardens which will help keep the birds fed during the winter.
This week we have been learning about woodland animals, and were particularly interested in hedgehogs. We learned that hedgehogs are nocturnal and that they hibernate in the winter.
We built hedgehog homes to help them find somewhere warm to hibernate.
This week we explored Diwali. We made Diva Lamps, and explored colour, light and dark.
This week we explored Halloween and Bonfire Night.
We loved dressing up, and using pumpkins in a variety of ways to support our fine motor skills.
We made loud and quiet sounds with our musical instruments to create our very own firework sound display.
This week we explored pumpkins. We opened them up to see what was inside and scooped the seeds out. We loved hammering golf tees into the pumpkins and used different tools to try to break the pumpkins apart.
This week we made toast.
We talked about our favourite toppings, popped the bread in the toaster and used a butter knife to spread our chosen toppings on our toast.
This week we have been exploring the story 'Goldilocks and the 3 Bears'.
We have made porridge and tasted it at snack time!
We also went on a walk around the school field to collect Autumn treasures to make an Autumn collage.
Run, run, as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man!
We have been exploring different smells and textures, including Gingerbread play dough and cinnamon rice. We have been snipping in our sensory garden to make perfumes and potions. We used real tea bags in our water tray to pour cups of tea.
This week we read the story ‘The Runaway Pea’.
We’ve used different equipment to mash, scoop and mix up peas. We loved using the strength in our hands to squash the peas so much that we explored oranges, lemons and limes. We loved squeezing them to release the juice...and it smelled delicious too!
We also performed our class song this week which is on the Children tab then click Morton Videos. :-)
This week we have been exploring the resources and activities in our classroom and getting to know our new friends and routines.
