Our Autumn learning
This Autumn we have been very busy using our lovely new classroom resources.
We have been learning all about of the changes we see in Autumn. We explored lots of natural items like crunchy colourful leaves, shiny conkers and acorns, huge pumpkins filled with seeds and prickly pine cones. We also learnt about how hedgehogs hibernate in the Autumn time. We enjoyed learning the story of Ned the Hedgehog and were all very pleased when he finally found a home in a big pile of leaves.
We have been busy singing, building, dancing, painting in lots of other ways too.
Here are some of the things we have been doing.
Shapes, shapes, shapes
In Maths we have been learning all about shapes. We have been singing songs, building shapes, hunting for shapes on the playground and describing them to each other. Ask me about which shapes I know. Can you find any on your way to school or in your home?
Our latest topic in RE is all about Birthdays. We had special party to celebrate Pete the Cat's 5th birthday. The children made cakes and cards, decorated the home corner, wrote party invitations and of course sang happy birthday to him.
In the next few weeks we will focus on another special birthday. The children will learn about the first Christmas when Jesus was born. We will be making advent wreaths, decorating the classroom, singing songs, learning the Nativity story and of course preparing a performance to show our families.
