Poldhu

Marvellous Me!
 
Welcome to the Autumn term. We hope you all had wonderful summer break!
 
Mrs Barber, Mrs Tate and Miss Gaylard are looking forward to welcoming you to a very exciting term in Poldhu class.
This half term we will be focusing our learning on the topic 'Marvellous me'. We will be busy exploring our senses with a trip to our local woods and using our taste to try different fruits from around the world. We will be learning about our body parts through the story 'Funny bones' by Allan Ahlberg and investigating different ways to keep ourselves healthy.
 
Throughout the term will be getting creative with lots of painting and junk modelling. We will create our own self portraits, using a variety of resources, which will then be proudly displayed around the classroom.
 

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.
