LQ: Can I recognise signs of Autumn
LQ: Can I sort autumn animals and autumn colours?

The sun shone as we put on our wellies and coats and set off in search of autumn animals. We looked in the trees and on the ground to find a spider, owl, squirrel, hedgehog, fox and a bat.

Then, we all searched for autumn colours that were brown, yellow, orange and white in colour.

Next, we worked in teams to sort the animal pictures to find their correct homes.

We then looked for an autumn leaf to bring back to the classroom and look closely at and draw what we see.

Baking Bread

Following the story ‘The Little Red Hen’ and in preparation for our Harvest Festival we were inspired to make some bread.

Our hands and fingers were very busy kneading and rolling the dough. We looked at the ingredients needed and thought of lots of words to describe the dough including ‘squidgy’, ‘soft’ and ‘stretchy’ and how the bread changed once cooked.

Of course the best bit was eating our fresh bread and enjoying the delicious smell!

Pupil Voice:

C.M-S: We put warn water in so it didn't kill the yeast.
J.M: We put bread flour in. We mixed it with our hands - it was messy!
A.V: We used our hands to squeeze the dough.
E.A: We stretched the dough.
C.M: We put the tray on top of the oven where it was warm. This made the dough grow

LQ: Can I share and handle tools safely?
LQ: Can I talk about the plants?

Today the children have been busy planting winter flowers in the Seedlings outdoor area. They did lots of digging with the trowel and looked at the roots on the plants too. We then drew pictures and made marks and letter shapes about what we did.
