Autumn Term 2 - Can I read you a traditional story?

Week 1 – This week we have been reading ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, and Hansel and Gretel. We have been busy looking at different types of houses, made out of different materials by creating the homes of the three pigs, and the witch’s sweet house. We have also been thinking of the celebration of Diwali, by making diya lamps, rangoli patterns and creating mehndi on paper hands. We also did some spooky Halloween threading and spoke about what we dressed up as on Monday, and what we did in the half term. We also spoke about fire safety leading up to the weekend for fireworks night.

Week 2 – This week we adventured into the world of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. We played with oats, and thought about Big, Medium and Small. We observed Remembrance Day, by thinking about soldiers, and created our own poppies. Thank you to everyone who came to our ‘Stay and Play’, it was lovely to catch up. In numeracy we thought about sorting and seeing a similarity and difference between objects. We also read ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’, we working out acting out they story and the children loved retelling it in their play.

Week 3- This week we read ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ and ‘The Gruffalo’. We thought about all the ways we can describe a troll, worked on our acting skills to retell the story, and thought about the story in our play. We also did our first STEM project ‘Humpty Dumpty’ where we had to make something for the egg Humpty Dumpty, so when he fell, he did not break. Bumblebee Class did really well to think critically about what happened if their creation and how they could fix it for next time. We also looked at Monet’s ‘The Water Lily Pond’ painting to create our own bridges using Candle wax, crayons and watercolours. As part of PSED we learnt about ‘Pantosaurus’ and all the rules about keeping what’s in your pants stays private.

Week 4 – this week we have been busy reading ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We have explored both stories through our play, created beanstalks using different green materials, and have worked on our building skills. In Numeracy we have been looking at the concept of big and small, ready to start measuring next week. We have been drawing around our feet, cutting them out and comparing them to Jack, the giants, the golden hens and the cows to see which is bigger and which is smaller. Outside we have been continuing working on our PD skills in our new environment and helping Mrs Weir with pulling all the old plants out of the flower beds, ready to plant new seeds and bulbs next term.

Week 5 – This week we looked at fairy-tale royalty as we ventured into Rapunzel and Cinderella. The children looked at the traditional version and an alternative version of the story, and we spoke about the similarities and differences of them. We observed St. Andrews day and learnt about one of the four nations of our country, we made shortbread to celebrate. We also had a very exciting morning on Wednesday when we dove into the fairy-tale forest and explored where the giant lived in the clouds, then shortly after started to celebrate Christmas. On Friday we had our school Disco. Thank you to the PTA for all the hard work you put into making the event run so smoothly.

Week 6 – This week we were very busy trying to catch the Gingerbread Man! We all baked our own one, and took him home. We were also busy practicing for our first Christmas assembly next week. At the end of the week we were lucky enough to be able to explore the ice outside and think about how it got there.

Week 7 – This has been another busy week leading up to Christmas. We have been getting ready and performing our Nursery show which was amazing. We are so incredibly proud of every single one of them and what they achieved. We have also been wrapping our presents for our mums and dads. This week we even learnt about a new festival called Hanukah which is celebrated in Judaism. We even got to finish the week off with a little disco in the school hall with all their friends, siblings, and teachers. Merry Christmas, and we will see you all in the New Year!
