This week the children have been playing with Spaghetti. They have had to save the animals that got caught up in the Spaghetti web, untangle the spaghetti and use it to make spaghetti sounds!
The children worked together to make a giant colour wheel using carrot sticks to print with!
The children have been making their own chalk paint in Ducklings class. They crushed pieces of chalk with rolling pins, and then added water and mixed to make some super fun chalk paint, which they used to decorate the outside area!
We have been very busy learning about repeating patterns in maths. Ducklings have made so many fantastic patterns out of the different objects they could find around the classroom!
We have been learning the j sound this week! The children enjoyed practising their scissor skills and cutting up the very sticky jelly!
Ducklings enjoyed going for a walk to the church and taking part in the Harvest Festival service with the rest of the school. They sang their own version of Old Macdonald and thanked the farmers and God for the food that we have to eat.
Finding out about where our food comes from!
We have been learning all about where our food comes from and how it gets prepared so it can be eaten. Ducklings have learnt about how farmers get milk from their cows, and how the fields are ploughed to harvest wheat and grains for bread and cereal. We learnt about apples growing on trees. Each child ate an apple to find the seed in the middle. Then they planted their seeds in the outside area to see if we can make more apples grow in the future!
Exploring the new environment!
Duckling class have had a fantastic first few weeks getting to know each other, and exploring the classroom and outside area. They have been playing in the kitchen, sharing stories in the reading den, drawing with chalk and making some fantastic models.
