Our topic this term is called ‘Into the Woods’. All of our learning will be based around the story Gruffalo to begin with, so we went into the woods to listen to the story.
We then made character hats.
We then tasted some Gruffalo story related food.
Then during PE we travelled like the different characters in the story. Then we learnt the Gruffalo song, and put some actions to this.
We are learning this Gruffalo song. I thought you might want to sing along at home with your child. Have fun!
The build up to Christmas has been GREAT fun at school.
After celebrating our first school Christmas lunch, wearing our fabulous Christmas jumpers, we got busy making Christmas cakes.
We all made a Christmas wish, whilst giving it a stir!
We helped to decorate our class Christmas tree.
We then got dressed up to take part in our first school Christmas play, which was called ‘Children of the World’. Here are some of us ready to go on stage…..
We had two songs to sing on stage, but we also had to learn dances too. We did all of this in front of a HUGE audience. Some of us volunteered to also speak on stage, which meant learning some lines.
We then went to Tesco to spread some Christmas cheer, and sang more Christmas songs.
We did some Christmas maths, and wrote letters to Father Christmas.
We were then very lucky to have a visit from a lady from church. She brought some large puppets with her, which we used to re-tell the Christmas story.
We would like to wish everyone a HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
Wrens experienced their first school Christmas lunch today, wearing their fabulous Christmas jumpers.
They were certainly dressed for the occasion, as they also made lovely Christmas crowns to wear too.
Their first Christmas lunch was made by these lovely ladies.
Who also dressed for the occasion!
We absolutely love this season, as there is just so much you can do at this time of year outside and inside. We got busy using all of the lovely leaves that had fallen from the trees.
We made leaf crowns to wear for our autumn sing-song.
We created autumn place mats, clay leaves and tea lights.
We also stuck with the autumn theme for our biscuits. Here are our squirrel and leaf biscuits. Yum, Yum!
We learnt some new autumn songs, which we confidently sang in front of all our parents and carers.
We then worked with our parents and carers at some autumn activities.
We held a scarecrow competition with a twist. They all had to be linked to a book character. Take a look at the entries…
The winners were chosen by Mr Wirth (The Headteacher) and Mrs Bower (The Literacy Co-ordinator)
George Pig – from Peppa Pig & The Witch – from Room on the Broom
Mrs Marriott & Mrs Briggs were blown away with our amazing hard work and effort. Bring on the next season!
Our first P.E lesson was finally here.
We warmed our bodies up first by playing the ‘Bean Game’.
We then talked about space and spatial awareness. Then played ‘Rabbits and Burrows’.
We then used hoops and pretended that these were cars. We had to listen to instructions given and then carry these out. For example, Mrs Marriott said, ’roundabouts’ and we had to sit and spin in our cars.
We then continued to work on our listening skills, and played ‘Teacups and Saucers’.
We then worked in our teams, and did a little bit of running.
Mrs Marriott was so pleased with how quick we got ready for PE.
