Week beginning 14th November

This week we have continued to learn our Christmas Play songs with nursery. We have also chosen the parts we would like to play. We have begun to learn about addition in maths and have added objects together. Outside we pulled up the last sunflower and used it measure lots of things, including ourselves! We have continued with our phonics sounds focusing on ‘zz’, ‘qu’ and the words ‘back’ and ‘had’. Here are some pictures of us learning.

Week beginning 7th November

This week we have been outside on a frost walk. It was a beautiful day and we went and investigated what the frost on the field felt like and what it sounded like when we walked on it. We also collected different coloured leaves which we then sorted back in the classroom. We looked at the work of Jackson Pollock and used the paint outside to create a large firework picture. On Monday we made winter soup. We cut up carrots, leeks, potatoes and pumpkin. We put the vegetables in a saucepan with some vegetable stock and cream and cooked it. We all had a chance to taste it during the afternoon! In phonics we have focused on the sounds ‘y’ and ‘z’ and the words ‘can’ and ‘dad’.

Week beginning 31st Oct

This week we have been scooping out the inside of the pumpkins and then we investigated the sounds they made when they were hollow. We ended up with a pumpkin drum kit! We then did some observational drawings. We also talked about the festival of Diwali and then created Rangoli patterns. Some of us planted bulbs outside in the garden and we also practised our balancing and climbing in the hall. We have continued our phonics and looked at some new sounds ‘j’, ‘v’ and ‘w’. We also investigated weighing with the balance scales.
