Mental Health Awareness Day

As part of our mental health awareness day children talked about what things they do that make them feel happy.

LQ: Can I recognise ways to feel happy?

A.B. - "Play with my dog Harley."
O.H. - "Play with the trains and build a long one with lots of carriages."
T.S. - "To make me happy I go to the park and play on the round-about."
B.A - "When my uncle comes to my house, that makes me happy. We play hide and seek."

LQ: Who can I talk to if I feel sad?

J.F. - "To my mummy and daddy."
W.V. - "To a buddy or friend."
M.E. - "To the teachers."
J.R. - "To nanna and grandad."

We then went outside to clap as hard as we can for as long as we can. Take a look at how we got on, it certainly made us feel happy!

LQ: Can I recognise signs of autumn?

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. After that we looked for an autumn leaf before finally sitting down to look closely at the colour and outline of the our leaf and draw what we could see.

J.R -"I liked finding the different things and matching them to the colours."
A.S -"I liked looking for the autumn animals and where they might live."
J.M - "Looking for different leaves and I found an acorn!"
L.D - "It was fun when we played the game to run and put the animal in the right home."

LQ: Can I enjoy a wide range of books?

Children have been busy enjoying books in our new literacy lodge and the class reading area. Which books do you like and why?

C.P: I like Star Wars books, the one that looks like bears called Chewbacca. I like bear books too.
A.B: I like butterfly books because they can fly and their pretty colours.
J.M: I like looking at books about aliens because I like aliens, they live on the moon.
A.C: - I like books about princesses because they have pretty dresses like Cinderella.

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!

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.
