Term 3 – Traditional Tales
We came back after the holidays ready to learn and we were excited to start our theme of Traditional Tales. We started with The 3 Billy Goats Gruff and just loved building bridges in many ways to help the Billy Goats cross the river or valley. We then moved on to the 3 Little Pigs and built houses with different materials. We even tested out which houses would be blown away by a fan! Finally, we learned The Gingerbread Man and Chestnut Class performed this story for their class assembly. We were very proud of how much we managed to fit in this term and are looking forward to what term 4 will bring.
Term 2 – Festivals of Light
This term our theme was called “Festivals of Light” and we spent lots of time learning about Guy Fawkes Night, Divali, Hannukah and Christmas. We made and tried eating potato Latkes and we had a go at designing our own mehndi patterns. This term we also started our phonics and maths learning and we love showing people what we now know! Ask us what numbers we can make with our fingers or what sounds are in words and we will be able to show or tell you. We finished the term with an exciting Christmas week, taking part in the school show and eating Christmas dinner.
Term 1 – Getting to Know You
We spent a lot of time in our first term getting to know each other. We were able to play with lots of new friends and try lots of new things. We were really excited to start going to the hall for our lunch and play with the “big” children at lunchtime. We started to look at the environment around us an learned about what happens during the autumn.
