Autumn 2 2019
We have been exploring stories this half term. The children have been very excited about our ' helicopter' stories where we act out a story an adult has scribed for a child. We discovered a crime scene one day when Goldilocks had sneaked into The Three Bear's house and caused havoc. The Little Gingerbread man has also been a favourite and we even made some to sell at our Christmas fair. The children also brought in their favourite stories that we shared.
Autumn 1 2019
We have all settled well into F2 and are very familiar with our routines. We began by talking about how we can change our faces to show how we feel and by finding out about what we do at different times of our school day. We have discovered how we have grown and changed since we were a baby. We have explored colour mixing, even in puddles on a rainy day! The children have learnt about how Jewish people celebrate Hanukkah. We loved visiting some woodland and found many autumn treasures.
Summer 2 2019
We have been "mad about mini beasts" this last half term. We started off with a bug hunt and then the children were really interested in worms and ladybirds. We even made a wormery to look after some worms we found. Ladybirds helped us to explore doubling.
Spring 2 2019
F2 have had a busy half term finding out all about food. It all started with an unexpected visitor who turned out to be a tiger. They were inspired to help Supertato after Evil Pea imprisoned his friends. We have done a lot of planting inside and out and talked about where food comes from. A visit to Morrisons was brilliant first hand experience for our own supermarket where the children used their literacy and mathematical skills.We used the carrots Rabbit left us for lots of carrot based baking. We ended with Holy Week and our Walk of love.
