Autumn Term 1 Overview

Autumn Term 1 Newsletter

Marvellous Me!

 

This term we have been learning about what makes us marvellous! We have talked about how to be healthy humans by eating well, exercising, washing our hands and cleaning our teeth. 

 

We have talked about why some people in Britain choose to celebrate Harvest Festival. We read the story of the Little Red Hen. Her friends did not help her harvest the wheat and make the bread. We worked together to make bread.

This week we have been reading the story 'Pumpkin Soup' by Helen Cooper. The children have enjoyed acting out the story and we even made our own yummy pumpkin soup. The children all helped to chop the ingredients and we tasted our delicious soup to warm us up after a busy day outside. The boys and girls worked in groups to build houses for the duck, cat and squirrel from the story using sticks, leaves and logs.

'Remember Remember week'. This week we have been learning about why some people choose to remember at this time of year. The children talked about experiencing bonfires and fireworks and worked together to create their own bonfires using materials around the classroom. The year 4 children joined us and had a 'natter chatter' with our EYFS children, explaining about why some people choose to wear poppies at this time of year. They helped us to create some wonderful poppy art through loose part play and painting together.

This week we have been talking about why it is that some people choose to celebrate Diwali. We listened to the story of Rama and Sita and acted it out in our role play. We also enjoyed manipulating clay to make our own thumb Diva lamps. We made our own Rangoli paterns and enjoyed listening and dancing to traditional Indian music in PE.

The children have enjoyed some fine motor fun decorating Christmas trees and re-telling the Nativity story in our small world area. Friday was Enterprise day and the opportunity for the boys and girls to sell their wonderful handmade crafts in our Christmas Shop. We had so much fun selling the items and working with money and the children loved showing their grown ups what they had made.
