Dover Class have settled into school so wonderfully and are enjoying getting to know the school rules and routines and have spent lots of time exploring their new classroom and outdoor area. We have made lots of new friends and have learnt about the values animals and how we learn during exploring time!
Dover Class went on a familiar signs and labels hunt around the classroom! They spotted lots of different signs, logos and labels that they recognised from shops, the telly, or from home. They then went on to spot other signs in the classroom. They found a hand washing sign and a fire exit sign as well as the St Martins School logo on their jumpers and book bags!
Dover Class have been learning all about Harvest and what happens during autumn time. We began by finding out about what happens at Harvest and the types of foods and crops that are harvested before the winter. We learnt how Scarecrows are made during Harvest time to scare away any birds who might want to eat the crops! We made our own scarecrow called Sidney! We made him in lots of stages added straw to his clothes, a paper mache face and a hat and scarf to finish him off nicely! We also read the story of the Little Red Hen and learnt how flour is made from wheat to make bread. We made our own bread rolls using a recipe and enjoyed getting messy! We also collected autumn treasures on our welly walk this week to make our own leaf kebabs! Do you like the amazing colours on them? We each tried to find something red, orange, brown and yellow.
