All About Me

What can you tell me about yourself?

 

We have been having fun finding out all about our new friends in Yellow and Orange Class, including the adults! We have been learning about the differences and similarities between each other, including how we look and feel.

The children have been exploring and learning about their new environment at school, finding out where everything is and how to use it independently.

Autumn has arrived!

The children have loved exploring the world around them, looking for similarities and differences and noticing all the autumnal changes outside. We read the stories 'Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn' by Kenard Pak and 'Leaf Man' by Lois Ehlert. Some of the children were inspired to make their own leaf men/ animals.

We enjoyed visiting the Canopy area and found that squirrels have been visiting the area and eating some the conkers that had fallen onto the ground!

Lots of leaves have blown into our outside area recently - the children were very keen to help Mr Penfold by sweeping up all the leaves off the floor! They created their own leaf sorting machine and sorted the leaves by colour into the different hoops. Brown had the most leaves in the hoop, followed by red.

There were a few 'helicopter seeds' from the sycamore tree in the playground on the floor and the children enjoyed experimenting dropping them from different heights.
