We had a special visit today from Hydestile Resident Animals. We got to meet lots of amazing animals and learn about how to look after them in the wild or as pets. Some of the animals that we saw included a hedgehog, polecats, barn owl, kestrel and guinea pigs. The hedgehog was one of our favourite animals and we learnt how we can care for them in the wild as they are an endangered species. Thank you for all of your donations to go towards this fantastic cause.
Friday 10th November:
Today the children had lots of fun learning a dance routine to 'Singing in the Rain'. We learnt some movements as a whole class and then came up with our own movements that we incorporated into the song. We practised all morning and then invited Ladybird class to come and watch us perform. They were very impressed with our dance!
This half term our topic was Nursery Rhymes. I was impressed by how many Nursery Rhymes the children already knew and could teach me! We learnt a lot of new Nursery Rhymes and the children enjoyed singing them regularly. Some of our favourites included three blind mine, I'm a little teapot, Miss Polly had a dolly and Insy Winsy Spider.
This half term we have really enjoyed exploring the seasonal changes. We started our Autumn experience by going on a hunt in our outdoor area to see what signs of Autumn we could find. During our carpet time we talked about these changes and the children enjoyed telling me all about the colours of the leaves that they had found!
The children enjoyed exploring a range of Autumn activities including leaf printing, creating their own Autumn tree and weighing different Autumn objects. If you go on any walks then ask your child to tell you what they know about Autumn and see if you can find any signs of Autumn together.
