Creating our autumn potions
In class, we read the story, 'The Scarecrow's Wedding.' After this we decided to set up for a wedding in the garden area. It was good fun making things for the wedding such as: confetti, bouquets of flowers, outfits to wear and building a car to travel in. We also made bunting to hang up. It was important that we didn't forget anything so we wrote a list just like the scarecrow did in the wedding. In maths we have learnt all our numbers to 5 and we have enjoyed meeting each new Numberblock.

It is nearly harvest which got us thinking about vegetables. We set up our own vegetable shop where we washed and scrubbed the vegetables after they had been picked out of the soil. After that we transported them to our shop where we sold them. We enjoyed reading the story 'Oliver's Vegetables' and we talked about the vegetables that we enjoy eating. However, we then had a visit from a vegetable that isn't kind! The evil pea visited us out of the book 'Supertato'. He trapped some radishes in jelly and we had to create a tool to get them out without touching it.

This week we turned our home corner into a doctor's surgery and we were really interested in finding out about our bones. We enjoyed reading the story Funnybones- Bump in the Night and we acted out the story and made up some new places for them to visit. In maths we met the Numberblock characters for the number 1 and 2 and we went on a hunt in our classroom for these numbers. On Thursday, we had our welcome worship and it was great to see so many parents there. We enjoyed singing our favourite song to the whole school.
It was a very windy day so we decided to make our own kites!
The children have been busy exploring their new classroom and getting to know each other and the adults in the class. We have spent time talking through and practicing new routines. The children have been really quick at stopping to listen when they hear, "Hands on top!" The children stop and then shout back, "That means stop!"
