Courageous Advocacy

We are really excited about our courageous advocacy project this year. In RE we have been learning how Christians believe that we should look after God's creations. We have therefore decided to work on a recycling project this year.

Autumn is Here!

In our Topic work we have been thinking about autumn and we had a beautiful nature table in class. We decided that we would recycle the things from our nature table to make a hedgehog hotel! We learned that hedgehogs (and other animals) hibernate for the winter and we really hope that one of them chooses to stay in our hotel!

Diwali and Christmas!

We began Term 2 by looking at Diwali. The children enjoyed making Diwa lamps, lanterns and rangoli patterns using colored rice. We learned that Diwali is celebrated throughout the world as the festival of light. Our role play area was a restaurant serving traditional foods, with traditional decorations and we read and reenacted the story of Rama and Sita.
We are already beginning to think about Christmas! We wrote our Christmas lists and posted them off to Father Christmas at the village post box! Not only are we hoping for a response in the mail, but also a very special video message from the man himsELF!


Keeping Healthy!

As part of the EYFS curriculum we learn how important it is to keep our body healthy. This term we have covered screen time, sleep, exercise, diet and how to keep or teeth healthy. We have had a Doctors' Surgery in our role play area and our final topic for this term was how to keep our eyes healthy. Our role play area became an opticians' and we were absolutely delighted to welcome Sam the optometrist to our classroom. Sam taught us all about how to keep our eyes healthy. He showed us many of the tests that are performed by optometrists and we loved having a go at some of them! A huge thank you from us all, we always love having visitors in Class R and we are looking forward to many more when we cover People Who Help us later this year.
