We have continued with our topic work this week. Our topic is Ourselves and Our Community and we are focussing on people who help us within our community this half term. We have learnt all about fire fighters and done some fire fighter role play. We have also made models of fire engines and buildings which we added to our small world area.
This week we have been very busy. We have been sharing our experiences of Bonfire Night. We have also learnt about Diwali, the Hindu festival of light. We have also been learning about Remembrance Day and we have done lots of poppy activities, for example printing poppies with paint and decorating poppy biscuits.
In Class 1 we have been doing lots of learning about our families. We have looked at photographs of our families and represented them in different ways: collage, painting, drawing, playdough and peg dolls. We have also read stories and information books about families. We have also been learning about rhyming and have really enjoyed the rhyming book Oi Frog by Kes Gray. It was our first stay and play session this week and we had a great turn out!
We have had a great week in Class 1. We have started our phonics sessions and have learned the letter sounds m,a,s,d and t. In maths we have been learning all about the number 2. We have added new pages to the class number book we are making. Our topic this term is Ourselves and our community. We have been looking at our faces in the mirror and painting and making self portraits.
