We have had a lovely time in Squirrels class getting to know our new classroom and learning lots of new things. We started off our topic with a visit from the farm where we really enjoyed meeting all the different animals. We have been enjoying creating animal habitats in the block play and creating beautiful animal paintings. We have been practising our phonics with Obb and Bob and learning lots about addition in maths.
How Does the Weather Change?🌈🌧❄️☁️☀️
Our new topic is all about exploring different weathers! We enjoyed learning about different types of weather and kept weather diaries. We also made wind socks and tested which way the wind was blowing and rain gauges to help us record how much rain had fallen.
Autumn 2: Who is your hero?
We have been very busy in Squirrels class this half term. We have been learning all about Florence Nightingale as part of our History topic. We painted portraits of her and made our very own fact files about her life.
We have also been extremely busy practicing our maths skills and writing skills using out story map about 'Midnight Superhero'.
We have also been thinking about the people who help us such as Firefighters, Dentists, Teachers, Police, Doctors and Nurses.
In our Science topic we have been learning about the human body. We have named parts of the body and explored what organs in our bodies are called.
Spring 1: What Happened in 1666?
This half term we have been learning about the Great Fire of London. We have explored how London has changed since 1666 and how London looks today. We have also been exploring through our Science lessons different materials and compared the houses in 1666 to what the houses are made from today.
We have been designers throughout our DT lessons and designed our very own pizzas and packaging. We planned what we were going to do and then evaluated how well our creations were and what our pizzas tasted liked. We had to think about what went well and what we would change next time.
Throughout our Art lessons we have been exploring the work of Wassily Kandinsky. We have learnt that he used different colours in shapes in his paintings and believed that colours can chnage the way you feel.
