…has been full of autumnal investigations, activities and observations.
At the start of the week we went on an autumn walk around the school grounds, collecting evidence of the new season. We then used our leaves, conkers, acorns, twigs and pine cones to support our learning and created our own hedgehog houses to experience what it might feel like to hibernate.
In Maths we enjoyed sorting, using our noticing skills to observe patterns, using conkers to practise counting and comparing quantities.
In Phonics, we practised alliteration by using describing words: crazy conkers, hairy hedgehog, amazing acorns and lovely leaves to name but a few.
We have been developing our fine motor skills by investigating what is inside a pumpkin, making leaf hedgehogs, cooking our own cinnamon playdough and threading leaves to make necklaces. This morning we were joined by some of our wonderful parents for Busy Fingers and our morning prayer; the children loved showing you their skills and their class!
