Term Three - Rainforests!
This term we are learning about Rainforests and what we can do to help them as part of a whole school topic “The World is in Our Hands”. We will be learning about what they are and where they are as well as what is happening to the rainforests around the world. We will be looking at the differences between life in the rainforest for the tribes that live in the Amazon, compared to our lives. We will also learn about the mammals, reptiles, birds and plants that live there too. We’re all really excited about this topic!
Im the rainforest, they eat lots of fruit as it is freshly grown in their trees in their climate. We made our own healthy fruit kebabs,practising our fine motor skills to chop the fruit and thread it onto our kebab stick. We used mango, lychee, pineapple, grapes, grapefruit, lime and lemon!
Term Two - A Festival of Colour!
This term we are learning all about colour. We are starting the term by celebrating Bonfire Night and Diwali, then focusing on using, naming and mixing colours before the lead up to Christmas!
Classroom Colour Hunt
Our challenge was to see how many things we could find that were red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. The children did a great job and found lots of objects in the classroom!
Term One - All About Me!
During our first term, our topic is All About Me! We are getting to know each other and make friends, as well as learning lots about ourselves and our families.
The children have all brought photos in from home of their families and really enjoyed sharing them with each other. It was good fun guessing who the people in the pictures were!
We hadn’t lots of fun drawing round each other on the playground to practise naming our body parts. It was exciting when we stood up and saw our bodies drawn in chalk!
We have been learning about our five senses ans the children really enjoyed exploring our touch sense by walking through different items. We used words such as slippy, crunchy, squelchy, crispy, wet and cold to describe them!
