Rectangles, and triangles, and squares (and circles!)- oh my!
This week we have been getting very busy with shapes. We have played shape swap, matched like shapes, built giant shapes in the construction area, drawn round shapes, made pictures using shapes and we have even found the pesky shapes that were hiding around our classroom!
Along with Class 1, we have also joined in with World Nursery Rhyme week, for which we have learned and practised a new song every day. We have done so well with this challenge- 5 songs in one week isn't easy! We can't wait to sing them for you at our showcase next Friday!
As the weather gets colder, the nights get darker and the seasonal changes are happening all around us, we thought it would be nice to begin this half term by learning all about Autumn. We have been on an Autumn walk to find Autumn leaves, read the story 'Leaf Man', made firework paintings and have turned our reading corner into a cosy Autumnal space.
As the children were really excited to tell us about the pumpkin picking and carving that they did during the holidays we have based a lot of our learning this week around pumpkins. We have read the story 'Pumpkin Soup' and made our own (although we weren't too sure about the taste!), drawn and painted our own pumpkins, carved an enormous pumpkin to see how many seeds were inside, and used a pumpkin to mark make on. Who knew a pumpkin could have so many uses?!
