Welcome to Poldhu Class!
The children will spend the first few weeks exploring their classroom and making new friendships. We will then get busy with our new topic 'My Favourite Things', where we will follow the children's interests and incorporate this into their everyday learning.
We will be exploring our senses with a trip to Godolphin House where we can use their barefoot trail and hopefully find some delicious blackberries to pick. The children will use their creative skills to make self-portraits out of a variety of materials. These will be proudly hung in the classroom for all to see!
The classroom will then become home to the 'Three Little Pigs' where we will be learning the story and acting it out with friends. We will be spending a lot of time learning outside and looking at the changing seasons.
We are very excited to start on this amazing adventure!
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.
