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.

Class One and Two have had a lovely day at Cannon Hall Farm today getting to meet all of the animals.

Our new topic is   ‘Where does snow go?”

The Woodland Team would like to say a massive thank you to all the parents/carers/grandparents that attended the ‘Stay and Play’ session.

The staff are REALLY proud of the children. They worked with their grown ups to find different autumn leaves that we have been talking about.

For our topic we have been exploring colours and how they change. The children enjoyed reading different Elmer stories and looking at the different colours. They were able to use scissors and glue sticks to create a scene from Elmer and the weather.
