Happy New Year Everyone!
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Holiday.
The Autumn Term went by so quickly! We learnt about lots of different celebrations – Bonfire Night, Diwali, Remembrance and of course Christmas. For all of the celebrations we explored how different people celebrate them and talked about how this might be the same or different to us.
We used various materials to make Diva lamps and lanterns which we used to decorate our home area. We painted poppies for remembrance day and even made spice paints to create mehndi hand patterns. We made firework pictures using glitter and enjoyed toasting marshmallows on our pretend campfire on the glade!
This half term we got to make full use of our school library. We looked at lots of different books and chose one to take home and enjoy with our families.
We had lots of fun with our Christmas activities. Our classroom Christmas tree was filled with our handmade decorations and we explored the nativity story using characters, props and books. We also enjoyed a Pyjama and Christmas Film afternoon. The Friends of Nightingale gave us a drink and a popcorn snack to enjoy with our film!
As the weather turned colder, we wrapped up warm to find the ice hiding in all sorts of different places outside. We have enjoyed exploring in all weathers and loved playing in the rain with our waterproofs and umbrellas! We like to be creative using our large construction materials outside, exploring its endless possibilities. We have made trains, boats and adventure busses this half term!
We are looking forward to our new topics this term and seeing all of your wonderful learning. Although we are currently remote learning we are very much enjoying seeing your learning at home on Tapestry and we are really looking forward to seeing you all again soon.
We have had such an amazing couple of weeks getting to know all of you. We have already had so much fun together learning how to use some of our outdoor equipment safely, including the bikes, hammock, slide and sandpit. We are so impressed at how well you have settled into your new classroom and we have already seen such amazing work with all of your pictures, paintings, models and singing!
Can you remember our class motto? Choose it, use it, put it away! Maybe you could try using it at home too?
Please remember to label everything you wear to school, including hats, gloves, scarfs and especially shoes!
Please remember to come to school at your allocated time for pick up and drop off.
We are really looking forward to our Autumn term as a whole class!
