Class 2 enjoyed their non-uniform day last week, we all had lots of fun!
We have been using clay to make our favourite critter that came to visit us. Can you guess which critter I am?
We had a visit from some creepy crawlies and reptiles. We enjoyed looking at them, finding out about them and feeling their different textured bodies.
We are so proud of our children for working with their grown-ups at home to create such wonderful dragons using many different materials.
This term we have been exploring the topic ‘Do Dragons Exist?’ We have been on a dragon hunt and followed foot prints to find the dragon eggs. We have looked after the eggs carefully until they hatched and then we went on an expedition to return the dragon babies to their mummy.
We have been learning about the celebrations of Diwali. During Diwali there is a festival of light, we made tea light holders out of clay and painted them in bright colours. We looked at different Diwali patterns and created our own using glue and brightly coloured sand.
We are so proud of our children for working with their grown-ups at home to create some amazing autumn mobiles made from lots of natural autumnal materials. We have displayed them in our classroom.
We have been reading a range of Percy the Park Keeper stories by the author Nick Butterworth. In our role play area we have had Percy’s Hut where the children have been dressing up as Percy and woodland animals to act out the stories.
This term we have been exploring the topic ‘Why do squirrels hide their nuts? We have been on an autumn walk where we found lots of autumnal materials.
FS2 Our new topic is ‘ Will you read me a story’ The children have started to look at a different traditional tale each week. They have explored different textures and materials.
