To link with our learning on the polar regions this afternoon we tried to make our own by adding some ice to our small world, we soon realised that it was starting to disappear!
Eddie the Elf
This week, we have had a little visitor. Eddie the Elf has been getting up to all sorts of mischief!
Children in Need
We dressed up in yellow, spots or as Pudsey to raise money for the BBC charity, Children in Need. We had great fun joining in to Pudseys 'super movers' dance and we even had a visit from Pudsey bear himself!
Today the children took part in their first science investigation. They were very excited to try the 'skittles experiment'. They worked together in groups, predicting what they thought would happen when they added water to the skittles. They then tested their ideas by adding water and observing the changes that took place.
In our pe lessons, we have been learning to move in response to music. Today, we put all of our skills together to create a firework dance with ribbons. We listened very carefully to the beat of the fireworks and the music, experimenting with moving in different ways.
Today the children were very excited to explore the fire circle to link in with their learning about Bonfire Night and fire safety. They worked in small groups to collect 'snappy sticks' from around the school grounds. After lighting the fire we enjoyed sharing some stories about nocturnal animals before making sure we safely put the fire out.
Today we went on a walk around our school grounds to see if we could spot any signs of Autumn. Lots of us noticed how the leaves were changing colour and falling off the trees, how there were berries on the ground and even some fungi growing!
This week to link with our learning about animals on the farm, we read the story of the 'The Little Red Hen' and had a go at making our own bread! We had to concentrate very hard to make our dough into bread roll shapes and very much enjoyed getting to eat them afterwards, they were delicious!
To link with our learning about Handa's Surprise we got to taste some of the fruit from the story.
