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.

What an exciting week in EYFS. We learnt why some people choose to celebrate Shrove Tuesday and eat pancakes each year. We learnt that you use milk, eggs and flour to make pancakes and we even made our own. The children chose their toppings and then tucked in... they were delicious! We have also had a very special arrival of ten eggs and an incubator. We have got to look after the eggs for 21 days until they hatch. We are very excited to meet our chicks!

We have had such an exciting week with our new arrivals! We had the eggs in our incubator for 21 days and we have watched them closely. They have now hatched and seven fluffly chicks have spent the week in our classroom. The children have loved observing the chicks closely, drawing them using wax crayons and carefully holding them.

What a treat.... the Easter Bunny visited our classroom and left us a letter with clues to follow. We had so much fun following them around school, carefully reading where we had to go next! They lead us back to the classroom where the Easter Bunny had left eggs on the nest cakes we made together yesterday. How exciting!

We have had such a wonderful term learning all about life 'Down on the Farm'. The children have learnt so much and particularly enjoyed having chicks in the classroom and visiting Rand Farm. We now know all about different farm animals and their babies, about the jobs farmers have to do and where our food comes from. We are looking forward to getting busy in our 'Gardener's World' project next term...

Well here we are in the Summer term! We are so excited for our new project 'Gardener's World'. The children have been busy over the holidays making cress heads to bring in and display in the classroom. They look wonderful! We will be learning all about how plants and vegetables grow and about insects and minibeasts that you might find in the garden. We will also be doing lots of planting and observations of the natural world.... let the fun begin!

We have been learning all about the important role of bees this week. Our core text is 'The Very Greedy Bee' by Steve Smallman. The children have been designing and creating their own buzzy bees in the playdough and creative areas. We have also had a visit from a local beekeeper who told us lots of fascinating facts about bees. We tried different coloured honey from different flowers and the children asked some marvellous questions.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside....... Summer term 2 is here!

We are busy learning all about the Commotion in the Ocean as our project for Summer term 2 and we are already bursting with fascinating facts about sea creatures! We know lots about jellyfish and other things you may find in the deep blue sea... we even measured a jellyfish with tentacles 27 metres long on the school playground. We have also enjoyed recreating roles and experiences in our seaside role play area. Such a lot of fun!
