Welcome to our topic 'Into the Woods'
Welcome back! We hope you have all had a lovely Easter break. This term we will be fully immersing ourselves into our new topic 'Into the woods'. We will be learning all about the different creatures that live in the woods and keeping a special eye out for a rather large, brown creature with purple prickles! We have already heard that the fairies are back living in our garden, so we will be working hard to make them feel welcome.
We will be regularly making use of our outdoor school where we can practise our acting and singing as well as learning all about the artist 'Andy Goldsworthy'.
Throughout the term will be learning about the life cycle of a butterfly with a real life experience! We cannot wait to go 'Into the woods!'
Within the early years, we always follow the interests of the children and cannot wait to see where their imaginations take us next.
Within class we follow the ‘Letter and Sounds’ phonics scheme, allowing all children to access and practise their sounds and become confident and competent readers. If you wish to find any more information on our current topics and curriculum please look at our topic web and class timetable.
After reading our class story 'The Three Little Pigs' we have been building our own houses. We tested their strength when 'the Big Bad Wolf' tried to blow them down! Lots of our houses were successful and stayed standing!
In preparation for Christmas we have been busy making salt dough decorations for the Christmas tree!
Whilst exploring Autumn, we discussed hibernating animals. Reading the story 'Don`t Hog the Hedge'. In class we made hedgehogs out of clay and then made them their own comfy homes to hibernate in for the winter.
We visited Trevaskis Farm to learn all about Harvest. Picking vegetables, printing patterns and even eating own home made bread for snack. We have used the apples we picked to make a crumble!
Taste testing!! We have been very busy cutting up lots of different fruit to feel, smell and taste the differences. Using our senses!
We have been talking about our bodies and exploring our senses at the Godolphin Bare Foot Trail!
We visited Crenver Grove! We explored the woodland and have been making a habitat for our friend 'Mr Badger'.
We`re Rockin' in our School Shoes! Getting to know our classroom.
