Autumn term 2018
Welcome back to school after the half term break!
This half term our topic is 'Autumn and festivals'. Please follow the link to the curriculum plan.
Remember, remember the 5th November....
This afternoon (5.11.18) we learnt all about Guy Fawkes and his plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament with King James I inside! We acted out the story with our friends.
We have spent a week learning all about why we wear poppies in November. We completed lots of work from the story 'Where the Poppies now Grow' and created lots of beautiful artwork to show why we should remember the wars. We invited our parents and members of our families in to school to see our work.
We're going on a leaf hunt...
We have been looking at the book 'We're going on a leaf hunt' during our English lessons this week. We have also been learning about why leaves change colour in autumn and how different trees have leaves that look very different. During our forest school session today (21.11.18) we went on our own leaf hunts to match what we have been writing. We also found the trees that we had been writing about too!
Christmas Craft Afternoon 3.12.18
Every year, we spend a whole afternoon in the hall with the children from Classes 2 and 3 making Christmas crafts. Each member of staff chooses a craft and the children select which ones they would like to make.
Decorating the Christmas Tree!
We have a large Christmas tree in class that the children have enjoyed decorating each day. Our virtual advent calendar also had a Christmas tree to decorate. The children very much enjoyed taking it in turns with their friends to add decorations to the tree.
Our Design/Technology projects:
This term, we have been learning how to sew. We first designed our owl and chose which fabric and accessories we would like on our work. We then carefully stitched feathers on the front of our owls as well as adding features and wings. We then decided how we would like the background to look using stampers, collage materials, oil pastels and metallic pens. We finally evaluated our work.
Welcome to all of our new children in Year R and welcome back to the Year 1s.
We are busy making new friends and learning the routines of the classroom as we enter the start of the Autumn Term. We are very proud of how well the children are coming into school and how well they are using the resources in the classroom.
