Terms 3 & 4

In terms 3 and 4, we read lots of traditional tales and were particularly enthusiastic about acting out the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ – building houses and walls in our outdoor construction area and then seeing if we could blow them down! We used this story for most of our maths during these terms, using our adding machine to help us to find out how many pigs we had altogether in the houses whilst Mr Wolf came along to eat pigs and help us with subtraction.

We worked really hard to make beautiful framed portraits of one of the bears from Goldilocks and the Three Bears and made warning signs and wanted posters for different Fairytale characters.

Children were very excited to receive a letter from the Shoemaker, who told us that he is swamped with work since the elves left, and helped him by designing and making their own shoe. We looked at photos of lots of different shoes and children then made their own, choosing the heel height and how they would like to decorate it. We loved the animal-inspired shoes and those that had rocket boosters attached!

This term, we also did lots of experimenting with clay, making and glazing clay pots for Mother’s Day and chicks for Easter, where we explored creating pattern and texture in the clay.

Terms 1 & 2

Over these terms, the children have been busy getting to know one another and the adults who work in the class as well as making new friends and exploring the classroom and garden area. We have especially enjoyed painting pictures of ourselves and practising our hammering skills, using the hammers to knock golf tees into a pumpkin. Our hand-eye co-ordination was brilliant.

In our playing and exploring, lots of us have enjoyed playing with bricks to build towers and enclosures, creating using craft materials and we have also had fun experimenting with making our own books that contain flaps and sliders. In our outside area, we have done lots of mark-making using different media and have explored different potion making ingredients!
