Terms 1 & 2
We started the term learning about ourselves and getting to know each other. We then looked at the seasons and all the changes we could see around us linked to Autumn. We went on an Autumn walk and enjoyed looking for different coloured leaves, berries and other signs of Autumn. We collected leaves and then used our senses to explore and describe them.
We learnt about Harvest and read the story 'Pumpkin Soup'. To enhance our learning we made pumpkin soup. We chopped seasonal vegetables, mixed them together and cooked them. We had great fun tasting the soup-some of us loved it but others weren't so keen!
In Term 2 we learnt about the Christmas story and began learning songs and actions for our Christmas production. We made a variety of Christmas crafts, including cards and decorations. We were very excited when Father Christmas surprised us with a visit. What a great end to the term!
