Once upon a time...
This half term our topic 'Once upon a time' has inspired our learning through several different traditional tales, including Jack and the Beanstalk, The Gingerbread Man and Little Red Riding Hood. We have used drama, role play and songs as well as lots of creative art activities to to immerse ourselves in the stories. A highlight of the term was our class assembly! We all enjoyed retelling The Gingerbread Man story and sharing our lovely work with the rest of the school and our families.
As part of our Understanding the World learning, we all planted a bean seed. We looked after our seeds by watering them and keeping them warm in the sunny window sill. It wasn't too many days before we saw roots and shoots appearing. We used magnifying glasses to keep a check on them. In keeping with our story, we each made a castle and a cloud to see whose bean would reach the castle first. Flo was the winner! We were able to link our maths learning too because we measured our beanstalks to see how tall they had grown.
A favourite activity this half term has been our outdoor PE sessions. We were all very keen to wear our new kits and trainers - we all looked super! We have learned new skills with hoops, quoits and skipping ropes and have practised our throwing and catching skills on our lovely school field.
