This week we have started our new topic, "Why do leaves go crispy?" To start off our topic we went on a walk in the woodland to find leaves and talk about the differences that we could see. Mrs Blakemore put us into pairs and we had a challenge to collect different types of leaves. Some of them were red, yellow or brown and we had to find big ones and small ones. We read the story 'Leaf Man' and then collected natural resources to make our own Leaf Man picture.
We have loved outside time this week because we have used some of our fundraising money to purchase some new ride on toys. They are fabulous because they are not just for one person. We can get three children on them which encourages to build friendships and helps us to develop our communication skills.
We have been learning all about how we welcome each other. In our collective worship we have thought about how we welcome people into church. We decided that we would welcome Oreo into our church community by baptising him. We made a church and a font in class and had parents and Godparents to be a part of the special ceremony. Oreo didn't mind having water poured on his head and liked it when we put the sign of the cross on his head.
Welcome back to our second half of Autumn term. It was a great day to come back, November the 5th, as it was Bonfire Night! We sang songs, watched a firework display and thought of words to describe them, so that we could make up our own poem. Outside we used twigs and leaves to make our own bonfire and we threw leaves up in the air and pretended they were exploding fireworks. It was great fun! We used our artistic skills to create firework pictures and added glitter to make them sparkle. We rolled up the paper and added some pipe cleaners to make fireworks.
