Learning By Inspiring Success
We have had a wonderful start to our Chilly Chilly topic! We returned to cold classrooms after our Christmas holiday. There were swirls on the floor and windows, snowflakes hanging from the ceiling and blocks of ice on the tables! We found a book outside and it turned out Jack Frost had been. We read a bit of the book from him and found a silver ticket inviting us to go ice skating! So after lunch we got on a coach and went to Beckworth Emporium. We had a fantastic time and we became much more confident and speedy on the ice. We were really brave.
We created wonderful firework pictures after Bonfire night. We decided whether we wanted to use chalk or paint. Some children got the chance to make large splatter paintings outside.
We found Stick Man in our outdoor area! The children decided that we should bring him inside.
In the outdoor area, the children had a go at building houses for Stick Man to help keep him warm.
The children have also had a go at making their very own Stick Men! Now we have a big pile of them! The children have learnt about different joining techniques such as tying string, using glue and sellotape.
The children brought in homework about trees. They drew and decorated a tree and labelled it with the different parts.
The children have been joining in the repeated refrain in 'Stick Man' and thinking about the rhyming words they could hear. Then the children had a go at writing their own version of 'Humpty Dumpty' using rhyming words.
In the book 'Stick Man' has to beware of lots of dangerous things. We thought about things that are dangerous for us and how we could keep safe.
We have settled in to school really well and we have been getting to know the school and each other. We have made some funny pineapple and grape pictures and displayed them on our walls!
We had a wonderful trip out to Mill Park. We sang an autumn song and threw leaves in the air, made leaf kebabs, made animals using natural resources, played with the parachute and we did bark rubbings with wax crayons.
We have had lots of fun in Forest School this term!
We enjoyed exploring the new playground games!
Anything you do with your child at home makes a huge difference and we really appreciate your support!
