Our next themes for Term 2 are 'I've got a friend' - looking at friendships and what makes a good friend, and also 'Seasons' where we will explore what happens to the world around us at different times of year. Of course we have had some Halloween fun this week, and we will be doing plenty of Christmas activities too!
In our Friendship theme, we have been learning about sharing, so we all brought in a special item and shared them with the class. Jess brought in Hedwig, Jodie had Tigger, and Stacey brought in a very special scan picture! We also had Woody, Upsy Daisy, Mr Happy, Snow White book, a teddy, two giraffes, a talking cat and a car with traffic lights! We had lots of fun! We've also worked together to make a giant Rainbow Fish which will go on display outside the classroom, we created our own shade of blue and decorated the fish with lot of glitter and sparkly bits!
We also spent some time learning about strangers, and the difference between strangers and safe strangers. We then had some role play where we dressed up as different people who can help us and had some fun being those people.
Our next theme is on seasons and we read a poem and explored the different things that the poem mentioned. Our favourite was definitely the snow spray! We will be producing different pieces of artwork for the seasons too and learning about the different artists. We also had a chance to explore the snow when it arrived and Jess even got pulled along on the sledge!
Our very first theme this term was 'Little Peter Rabbit', where we met a real rabbit, helped Peter find vegetables and baked & decorated our own carrot cakes, which we shared with the other classes at our big picnic.
Our next theme was 'Mr Men and Little Miss' where we looked at the emotions of the different characters. We had a great afternoon exploring different emotions using different sized mirrors on our own and with our friends.
Then we moved on to 'Pizza Party' where we ordered our own pizzas, looked at the ingredients in our pizzas, looked at food journeys before it gets to our homes, and learnt about different herbs and how to look after them.
