This autumn term has been busy and we have had lots of fun.
Pete the Poet
The children had a wonderful time with Pete the Poet. He told them lots of different stories and taught them lots of rhymes as they went off on their adventures around the world. They had fun looking for hidden animals, riding on a magic carpet and making beats and rhythms with the instruments.
The children had a lovely time celebrating Harvest. We started the day by making leek and potato soup. Each child got an opportunity to chop or peel some vegetables and we saw some wonderful control when using the tools. We then went on a welly walk to look for signs of Autumn. We were able to see the leaves on the trees turning different colours and we found lots of seeds on the ground. In the afternoon we did some Autumn crafts. We used lots of junk to make tractors and combine harvesters and we did some printing using leaves and different types of fruit and vegetables. We finished up the day with our homemade soup and bread.
Thank you to all the parents who came and supported our forest school session. The children had lots of fun and it looks like the grown-ups did too.
The children had a great afternoon learning how to skip in our skipping workshop. They practised jumping over a long rope as well as learning how to swing their ropes over their heads and jump over at the right time. They continue to enjoy practising their skipping at playtime and they are getting very good at it.
To celebrate Remembrance Day the children each made their own poppy and we placed these on display at the front of the school. The children were really good during the 2 minute silence and sat beautifully whilst we took part. They asked lots of questions and showed a keen interest in what the day was about and why we celebrate it.
