We have been studying pumpkin soup as one of our Harvest Texts. We have been looking at the vocabulary in the book used instead of 'cutting' the pumpkin. We have tried slicing pumpkins. We all agreed the Cat has a very difficult job!
We have been looking at Elmer the Elephant as our introductory topic! We have even painted a giant elmer!
Mr Koomson our Caretaker worked with us for the afternoon where we planted, peas, potatoes, sunflowers, poppies and lobelia.
We worked in teams and shared the jobs independently so that everybody had a turn!..... Using the outdoor tap to fill the watering cans was very popular!
Over the summer term it will be our responsibility to water the seedlings and plants whilst they are in the green house, then we will
transfer them to our outdoor area where we will continue to look after them!
The children visited Hamsterley Forest to go on a Gruffalo Hunt. We had a fantastic day and we even got to meet the Gruffalo's Child and the Stickman. We also had a picnic in the middle of the forest!
After our trip to the forest we have been busy designing our own log pile houses for the snake!
We have been exploring outdoor painting on clear plastic. We've experimented writing numbers, shapes and simple mark making.
