The start of a new school year! The children made a fabulous start to the new year, including getting to know their new teachers Mrs Fielding and Miss Langley. During the summer holidays the staff had worked on the indoor and outdoor areas of provision. The children were really excited to learn about all the changes and got busy in the mud kitchen and outdoor creative area. The children settled well and we soon began our focussed learning, along side child-initiated learning.
We developed our learning through the texts 'Rosie's Walk and 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'
Saw our first school trip of the year! We had a wonderful time at RHS Harlow Carr Gardens. We met Dillon the dragon who told us about his BIG brother; he had accidentally destroyed the homes of the elves and fairies who live in the woods. Our mission was to build some new homes for the elves and fairies. We worked on groups to create some super new homes, some even included hot tubs and landscaped gardens!
Our main text was 'Jack and the Beanstalk', which we explored through all areas of learning. The Giant sent us a letter explaining that he was not scary, but he was lonely. We decided to write back to him and told him we would be his friend. He was delighted and told us he was planning his birthday party. We offered to help him and wrote lists of all the things he would need. We ended the half term with a birthday party for the Giant. Unfortunately, he could not join us as he thought the would not fit into our classroom!
