All Things Autumn (Mini Topic)
Over the next few weeks we will be investigating autumn. Over the half term see what signs of autumn you can find, maybe collect some autumn objects to share with us in class.
Below is the topic planner with some home learning challenges to keep you busy over the half term.
Our new topic is all about night time and night time animals.
We will be finding out about light and dark, light sources, shadows, noises we hear at night and nocturnal animals and their homes. We will be reading lots of stories linked to night time and some non-fiction books too.
Over the next few weeks we will be very busy preparing for our nativity and beginning to think about Christmas celebrations. We will also start to think about winter and winter weather.
We will continue the topic after the half term for a couple of weeks and we will start to explore animals and countries that are cold.
Please have a look at our topic plan and home learning challenges.
We had lots of fun on our visit to the library.
We listened to stories, explored the library, shared books with others,
acted out stories, looked for books and read books on our own.
Oh how we love books!
We read the story 'Mouse Paint' and we found out about the primary colours.
We found out that we can use the primary colours to make new ones.
The children enjoyed experimenting and made lots of wonderful new colours.
We then tried mixing colours in a variety of ways.
We tried shaving cream mixing, bubble blowing, marble mixing and we used our hands to mix colours.
We had lots and lots of fun!
We have been busy learning about our brilliant bodies.
We have had lots of fun in the hospital role play area.
Many of us have amazing talents, especially when using bandages!
We certainly have some aspiring doctors, nurses and receptionists in our class!
Today we had a visit from the Firemen.
We got to look around the fire engine and even try some of the equipment.
This week we have been reading the story 'Peace At Last'.
We had lots of fun retelling the story using drama.
Although we are all very busy in class and rehearsing for our nativity, we still get a little time to play and learn.
The children are all very excited about Christmas. They have been busy designing, making toys, wrapping presents and even playing Santa or one of his many elves.
We have been exploring winter, winter weather and animals in winter.
We even had a bit of snow, which we loved exploring.
We will be reading non-fiction books about winter and story books on a winter theme.
We will also find out about Barnaby Bear and his travels around the world, with an emphasis on the Arctic and the Antarctic. We will find out about animals and people that live in the cold places around the world.
Chinese New Year
Over the next few weeks we will be learning about Chinese New Year.
We will have lots of fun in our Chinese restaurant role play area. We will be making and designing lanterns, dragons, fans and even try to use chopsticks to sample Chinese food. We will find out about Chinese customs and traditions and make our own music and dragon dance.
Barnaby Bear will take us on one of his many trips to China to find out about where it is and what it is like.
