Plum Class started the term with a wonderful Well-being day. We were introduced to peer massage and the emoji spectrum. We shared our summer holiday projects and carried out some team building exercises. Over the first three weeks, we will continue with daily massage and discussing how we can help ourselves to move up the emoji scale.
We are enjoying our new book, Beegu, by Alexis Deacon. We learnt to retell the story by heart.
Next, we acted out the story.
Over the last few weeks, we have used lots of different resources and manipulative to help develop our mathematical understanding.
Today, we solved anagrams for the parts of a tree. Then we went outside and labelled the tree. We have been thinking about plants and looking at them carefully. In Science, we have also thought about the weather and changes in autumn.
We all enjoyed planting violas, whilst our scarecrow looked on! Soon we plan to plant daffodil bulbs for a spring show.
Today, we thoroughly enjoyed our walk to the access trail in Hadlow. We discovered an orchard in the field and noticed many new things along the way.
Crabs have ten legs! Today, we put the right number of crabs in a rock pool by counting in steps of ten. It was great fun.
Here are two good examples of talk time learning about autumn. Leaves with tree names and a collage to show what was discussed.
Learning rhymes for home learning has been enjoyable to share in school. All these Plum Class members also wrote or drew a picture to show their favourite rhyme. Everyone performed so well!
In English, we thought about singular and plural. We matched the right words to the objects and then put the words into sentences.
In science, we tested leaves to find out if they were waterproof or absorbent. We need further testing before we have a scientific conclusion!
We had so much fun today, junk modelling a computer with all its parts!
