We have been learning all about planting, growing and minibeasts. We went on a walk to Carr Mill Dam and on a minibeast hunt. We planted seeds in pots, and planted flowers outside too. We even tried to grow a beanstalk! We watched caterpillars grow into butterflies and tadpoles grow into frogs.
This has been a very magical term with all of our work focusing around the story of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. On our journey we created some beautiful art work and made our own music. We wrote our own books, and went outside into the forest to make fairy gardens. We are great at retelling the story with actions!
We have had lots of fun learning all about space. We learnt about the solar system, and dressed up as astronauts in our spaceship role-play area. We explored light and dark in our ‘Dark Den’ too. It was very exciting when we came into school and discovered that a spaceship had crash landed in our classroom. I wonder what will happen next?!
Isla said, “I liked the Stick Man song. Especially the bit that went ‘I love my family and my stick children 1, 2, 3’.”
Charlie: “The dog bit the Stick Man all over. It was funny when the dog bit his bottom!”
Logan: “I liked those presents from Santa. I like Santa (be)cause be give sthe fast asleep boys and fast asleep girls some presents.”
Bella: “I want to watch it again!”
Last half term we have looked at transport in our topic ‘Are we nearly there yet?’ We visited St. Helens’ Transport museum and saw lots of old buses, cars, and railway models. We saw lots of red buses and even had the opportunity to sit down on them.
