What a busy term we have had so far!
All the children in squirrel class have settled into school really well and greet us all in the morning with big smiles.
We have been exploring lots of interesting stories and rhymes this term, linked to our 'Once Upon A Time...' topic.
In Mrs Allen’s class we enjoyed exploring a huge range of stories. From ‘Hooray for fish’ where we explored rhyme to ‘After the storm’ where we looked at different weather types. We also sang ‘I hear thunder’ using instruments to make the different weather sounds.
We explored our senses through sound walks, smelly pots and different textures.
We also enjoyed mark making in a variety of ways including: gloop, shaving foam, the interactive whiteboard, chalks, drawing patterns, tracing and writing in sand.
Finally we finished the term looking at the changes that happen in autumn. With the leaves changing colour and starting to fall off the trees we decided to go on an Autumn walk around the park. We collected beautiful leaves that we found and made pictures using them.
Most importantly we got to know each other and we are now a close team who help each other. It has been lovely to see new friendships blossoming. Well done squirrel class for having such a positive start to school life.
