Week 1 (wb 05.11.18)

This week we have been exploring different festivals and special events that have been happening this week.

 

First we learnt all about bonfire night, how to keep ourselves safe and what noises fireworks make. We drew fireworks and even made some sparklers that we could eat (yummy!)

 

Next up was Diwali (the Festival of Light). We explored how people celebrate this special festival and compared it to other religious events that we know (such as Eid and Christmas). We also made rangoli patterns.

 

Finally we have been creating poppies from carrier bags for our whole school remembrance field as well as creating paintings of poppies.

Week 5 (WB 01.10.18)

 

This week FS1 have made up a new song all about Autumn leaves.

 

Baa Baa Green Sheep, have you any leaves?

Yes I've seen some in the trees.

But some are orange, brown and red,

and those ones fall down on your head.

 

They're blowing through the window,

Coming through the door,

Falling down the chimney,

Crunching on the floor.

 

Can you find any leaves that are different colours?

Week 4 (WB 24.09.18)

 

This week FS1 went on an Autumn walk to look for Autumn treasures. We listened to the noises the leaves made in the trees and on the ground. We looked at all the different colours we could see.

 

Why don't you try going on an autumn walk and see what you can find? If anyone finds any conkers, pine cones or any other Autumn treasures we would love to use them to make Autumn collages in the next few weeks!

Week 1 (WB 05.09.18)

 

We have had a fantastic first week setting into school. We have had lots of fun exploring our new environment and making new friends. Some of us have shared our "My bags" with our friends at group time.

 

Watch this space for some photos of what we have been up too!

During this half term we will be learning all about what makes us special.

 

  • What makes you happy, sad or excited?
  • Who is part of your family?
  • What are your favourite things?

 

Every child in the FSU will take home a "my bag" so that they can fill it with some things from home that are special to them. Children will then be sharing these with their friends during group time.
