Hydestile Resident Animals 

 

Monday 13th November

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.

Dance Day!

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!

Poppies - We used lots of different materials to create Poppies to commemerate Remembrance Day.

Fireworks - We created colourful fireworks using neon paint. We enjoyed putting glitter on them to make our fireworks sparkle.

Nursery Rhymes 

 

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. 

 

 

Humpty Dumpty Challenge! The kings horses and kings men were fed up of having to fix Humpty Dumpty every time he fell off the wall. The children were challenged to create a protective coat for Humpty Dumpty so that he would not break anymore. The children had a great time choosing different materials and then testing their eggs to see whether they would break. We had some great scientific discussions around which materials would be best and talked about soft, strong and hard materials.

Nursery Rhyme Activities - have a look at the fun we have had this half term!

Little Bo Peep lost all of her sheep. We had to help her count her sheep back into their pen. We really enjoyed completing this challenge and practised our counting, number recognition and number formation skills.

Daisy's Junk Modelling Challenge! Daisy the cow had hurt her ankle and she could not jump over the moon anymore. She needed the children's help to create her something that could help her. The children came up with some fantastic ideas! Have a look at some of our creations.

Autumn 

 

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. 

 

 

Mark Making Opportunities - This half term we have had lots of different activities to develop our writing skills. We enjoyed making patterns on big pieces of paper and some of us created lots of treasure maps. We have also practised our writing in sand, rice and foam!
