Look at Us Learning

We are all settling into school life really well. Making lots of friends and trying new things. 


We have been learning 'All About Me' making self portraits and talking about our home lives. We have also been working hard on our colours and sorting objects. We went on a colour walk in the forest area to match colours and sort natural objects. 

We have all been working on patterns and spotting mistakes in Maths. 

Our Traditional Tale this term was Goldilocks and the Three Bears and we had lots of porridge play. We all had a go at making porridge for snack. 



We started off the new term learning all about water during Non-fiction week. We really loved visiting the school library to find other Non-fiction books that interested us. 

We then moved on to reading 'This is our House' by Michael Rosen. This story helped us work on our sharing skills. 

Then we moved on to learning about nocturnal animals and read Owl Babies to support this. 

We have also learned about Diwali. We read the story of Rama and Sita, decorated Mehndi hands and a Rangoli pattern. We also drew our own firework pictures and Diya lamps. 

We moved on to read The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr. We turned the home corner into a cafe and made all our customers sandwiches. 


Then to kick off December we read The Gingerbread Man. We decorated gingerbread men for the cafe and loved the repetitive phrase in the story. 

This term we started off by zooming up to space and reading Whatever Next by Jill Murphy. We dressed as astronauts, made marks in space dust and designed our own planets. 

We also began our understanding of number unit in Maths with representing number 1.  

We moved on to reading another story by Jill Murphy, Peace at Last, to identify similarities and differences between the two texts. We changed the home corner to a theatre and sold tickets for shows. In Maths, we moved on to learning about the number 2. 

Next we went on to reading the Traditional Tale 'The Three Little Pigs.' Each day we found a new house in our classroom either built out of straw, sticks or bricks and tested to see how strong it was. We kept with the traditional tale theme and read 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff.' It was also story telling week this week so we had an amazing workshop with Beth. 

We finished the week learning about Lunar New Year with a Dragon appearing in the corridor. We tried Chinese food, painted cherry blossom trees and wrote Chinese numerals. 

We started the summer term looking at 'People Who Help Us.' We listened to the story Zog and the Flying Doctors by Julia Donaldson. 

We then moved on to 'Superworm' by the same author. We made a worm farm and found some worms to looks after. We used socks to make our own super worms. 

We are loving our minibeasts at the moment so are reading 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle. We even have our own caterpillars to observe in the classroom. 

We ended the term reading 'Pants' by Giles Andreae. We looked at the descriptive words used to describe the pants and used them in our sentences. We also decorated our own pants using the marks we have learned in pen disco.
