Autumn 2: 2018
The children have had a fantastic time exploring our topic 'Percy the Park Keeper.' We changed our role play area into Percy's Hut and had great fun seeing our ideas come to life.
The children were fascinated with learning about British woodland animals, exploring where they lived and using words to describe what they look like.
The children have continued exploring the inside and outside learning environments. They have enjoyed creating pictures using natural materials based on the art work by Andrew Goldsworthy.
They have also explored art through lots of different media and materials. The creative table has been a particular favourite with the children using their imaginations and making their own pictures.
In Literacy this term we have been using our sounds to label pictures of the Woodland animals that live in the park with Percy. We have also been developing our word building skills. (Don't forget to look at our Phonics Workshop Information).
In Mathematics we have been looking at shape, space and measure. We have explored repeating patterns, naming and describing shapes, investigating the length of three objects and using the vocabulary longer, shorter, longest and shortest. We have also been practising our number formation.
Parents were invited to come along to a ‘Phonics Workshop’ session in October where they could learn how the children are taught ‘Phonics’ at our School and join in some activities with their child. If you were unable to attend or need a little reminder, please find the powerpoint and ‘Ideas’ letter below.
