What a super start to Term 2! Today was our hook day for our new topic, ‘how can I make it?’ We arrived at school and Mr Bump and Mr Happy had crashed their rocket into our classroom from a different planet as they had heard that we are really good at making things in Dover Class. We spent the day, showing them all of the different things that we can make using junk modelling, blocks, Duplo and much more. We were super creative and made many different things from animal homes, houses, towns, cars and towers. They were very impressed! We are looking forward to learning how to make new things this term!
Dover Class are loving welly walks around the school grounds on a Wednesday! Today we found massive piles of autumn leaves and couldn’t resist jumping in them and throwing them into the air to make leave showers! We had so much fun and spoke about how it was good for our well-being and made us feel like the yellow colour monster! We also worked as a team, collecting red leaves amongst the yellow, orange and brown ones to create a poppy to mark Remembrance Day. We were Respectful Rhinos and took 2 minutes to admire our poppy and remember all of the brave soldiers.
This week Dover Class worked super hard to make their own Christmas cards for their families. We decorated the front and then carefully wrote a message inside using our phonics sounds to help us. We then put our cards into an envelope and stuck on a stamp and our address which is where we live on the front. We then wrapped up warm and walked to the post box to post our cards home! We can’t wait for our families to receive them!
We have been learning all about 2D shapes! We amazed Mrs Vincent and Mrs Goodman with our ability to name the shapes as well as sort them and describe them. We have been using words such as straight, round, corners and sides. Do you like the shape pictures we made? We thought creatively about how we could use different shapes to create rockets, houses, people and much more!
