Autumn 2 2018

Welcome back after half term! We begin our half term with a mini topic about Bonfire Night, before moving on to our 'Walking Through the Jungle' topic. In December we will move to a colder climate, exploring the Antarctic and of course, begin to think about Christmas!

This half term children will start to bring library books home. Books need to be returned each Friday and your child will pick a new one on a Monday. We will also begin our PE sessions in the Hall. For morning children this will be on Thursdays and for our afternoon children this will be on Fridays. 

Week beginning 5th November

This week we have explored mechanical toys and how we can make them move. We have also explored different tools in the playdough area. Our number rhyme this week has been '5 Brave Firefighters' and our story of the week has been 'Dear Zoo'. 

 

On Friday, the children learnt how people wear poppies to remember those who lost their lives in the war. We painted our own poppies and had a one minute of silence together. 

Week beginning 29th October

This week we explored pumpkins - we talked about what they looked like, and felt like, and we wondered how we could cut into them and what we would find inside. We also talked about fireworks, and watched a clip of fireworks. We have also continued to explore the technique of printing. We used different things to print with, and then we used cardboard tubes to print our own firework pictures.
