Autumn Learning Project
My place in space
The children will spent the first half term making friends and learning about the school. The second half of the term will be based on the book 'What happens when you are sleeping' We will exploring nocturnal animals and the stars. This will lead in nicely to Christmas and our nativity that we will perform at the end of term.
Our learning so far
For our sparkling start we went round the school and meet all the people who could help us in school. We took photos of them and put them us so we could remember who they are and what thinks they can help us with. Our key helpers are the tree teachers at the top of this page.
We then used those photos to make a pizza face. We did a really good job on Mrs Massey's pizza face.
We also did week of HIIT in our class, we liked it so much we did it in the outdoor area.
We even go to have a go at the new fitness trail.
The children joined the whole school for a science assembly where a real life scientist came into our school and showed off some amazing experiments. But while we were in class a naughty monster came into our class and left it in a real mess. The monster left us a letter on how to make monster tea. So we decided to have a monster party and make some foaming tea.
The children made some slime and they were able to take some home, so I hope you enjoyed that.
We also tried out our touch senses and felt inside 3 secret boxes. We had to guess what was inside. We drew and wrote down our predictions. Each box contained an egg cooked in different ways. (raw, scrambles and boiled) The children discussed why they were different but still all eggs.
Later that week we made snails out of salt dough and then in our first family cafe we decorated them. Thank you to all the family members that were able to make our first family cafe, our next one will be week commencing 11th December.
Art week was a perfect start to our next learning project 'what happens when I fall asleep?'
This week we have been working collaboratively to carve pumpkins and then make pumpkin soup.
In the secret garden we worked together with our friends to find all the objects on our Halloween hunt sheet. It was so much fun to do it with our friends then on our own because it meant we have 2 pairs of eyes instead of one.
We made Pumpkin plate faces based on our own carvings. We had to look really carefully at the shapes on our pumpkins so we could cut out card and stick them on our pumpkin plate faces.
We used cut up apples to make pumpkin prints, them we painted on our faces with black paint.
We made firework art with blowing paint through a straw. We found it really hard work but we were resilient and kept going until we got a beautiful display of colour.
For the art exhibition we used a technique that Jack Brown our artist visitor taught us, about listening to music and making firework explosions with our pens, chalk and oil pastels. Nice big strokes from the middle of the page.
The parents really enjoyed coming to see the exhibition layed out in our school hall.
