Anti Bullying Week and Children in Need!
It has been another fun week at school in Class 1! We are still enjoying our topic on Outer Space. We loved the Alien's Love Underpants story and even decorated our own pair of pants using different textured materials as well as watecolour paints. We wore odd socks on monday to celebrate being different and unique for anti bullying week. On Friday we took part in the Daily Dash for Children in Need 2017. We challenged ourselves to jog around the hall for 5 minutes. The children were great at encouraging each other with motivating words and they felt so proud when they had finished! Well done evryone! Next week we are radibng the story Whatever Next by Jill Murphy.
We have been learning about Autumn, Halloween and Bonfire Night!
We had a great time in Class 1 learning about all of the events that take place at this time of year. We moulded play dough and added different materials to make fireworks. We remembered the names for the fireworks. Our favourite was the Catherine Wheel! We enjoyed the challenge of creating moving pictures for Bonfire Night using split pins to make the fireworks move and straws to make Guy Fawkes puppets. We have been working hard to order numbers correctly, talking about how we know which number is the biggest or the smallest.
Well done to all of class 1 for a super first half term in school! The children have settled in to the daily routine really well and have enjoyed all our learning topics. We were great talking about our families and our homes as we learned "All about me". We shared some super stories and information books during the "Under the Sea" topic including The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister and Barry the Fish with Fingers by Sue Hendra.
In the last week of term we had fun learning about festivals that take place during the Autumn season including Harvest and Diwali. We loved designing and making Diva lamps using salt dough and various decorative materials. Have a look at our fabulous creations above!
The children break up for October half term on Friday 20th October and school starts again on Monday 30th October. We hope you all have a lovely holiday and look forward to our topic of Autumn, Halloween and Bonfire Night when we return to school. Take a look at our new Autumnal role-play area below!
