The children have been learning lots of new routines along with getting to know new adults and make new friends.

Problem Solving

We had a fantastic maths problem solving afternoon. We worked in small teams with REO to complete some set tasks. We had to make a long colourful caterpillar matching the same colours together, make a large rectangle using the different shapes given, build a triangular shaped jigsaw along with make a square using 4 pieces. We got to work on all 4 challenges in our teams.

It was a fun challenging afternoon!

We are Unique

Our new topic is all about ourselves. We have been reading about the 'Mixed Up Chameleon' and discussing why it is good to be ourselves.

We have also made our faces out of clay and other materials.

Along with learning about why we are special we have also been looking at our bones and what makes up our skeleton. We read the book Funny bones, labelled a skeleton and sang lots of songs about our bodies.

To end our topic all about ourselves we had a 'senses day'. All the children got to do an activity focusing on the senses :touch, taste, sight, smell and listening.

Following on from Ourselves our next topic has been all about Harvest. We learnt lots of songs about this time of year and talked about the season we are in - Autumn. As part of our class discussions we have talked about all the different jobs farmers have to do, what is happening to the trees and their leaves and what other changes are taking place.

It has been so busy this term that it is amazing that we have found time to do any 'work'. The children of REA have been very busy, counting, ordering numbers, learning phonic sounds, learning to write and read their names along with hearing the initial and end sounds in words. The children definitely deserve a rest.

 

I hope you all have a lovely half term and I look forward to seeing you next term.

Welcome back, I hope you all had a happy and healthy half term.

 

In our first week back we have been learning all about nocturnal animals. The children spent the first few days of the week learning owl facts and we read 'Owl Babies'. The latter part of the week we have been focussed around hedgehogs. Discussing what they like to eat (cat food not milk as it upsets their tummy), where they like to sleep (plant pots) and why they curl up into a ball (they are frightened).

 

We were very lucky and had a visit from a lady who rescues hedgehogs and we got to meet Holly, Brian and Rocky.

Finished Clay Faces

Last term we made our own face out of clay. After they had been in the kiln we got to paint them with glazes and then they went back in the kiln. We got them back this week and they look great. Here they are.

Diwali Day

This week it was Diwali for Hindu's and Sikh's across the world. We learnt about this celebration and we had a special day with lots of activities focussed around Diwali. This was open for parents and carers of the children to attend.

We got to make little Diya lamps, cards, an arty sparkler, create rangoli patterns, draw a mendhi pattern on our hands and try some wonderful food.

Elmer the Elephant

For the past 2 weeks we have been talking about why it is so wonderful being unique and that we showed be respectful along with kind to others as we are all special.  We also have been learning about colour, mixing colours, the artist Kandinsky and repeat patterns.

Our chosen story was Elmer the elephant as he is such an individual character.

We are going on a baby hunt - The Nativity!

 

A big well done to both REA and REO for a fantastic Nativity performance. The children were brilliant. Singing beautifully, doing the actions to all the songs and just generally being super stars while on and off the stage.
