We have been such busy bees this week, I cannot believe how much learning has taken place.
In English, we have been learning to write a lost and found story. This week, the children wrote their own stories using the model ‘Dogger’ to support their learning. The children created amazing stories including the boy who lost batman, the Grinch who lost his dog, Declan who lost Woody etc. It has been amazing to watch the children build their stories each day and add descriptive vocabulary into their work.
In forest school, we have been learning about the seasons and the changes in weather. The children then used leaves and sticks to create stick mobiles and Christmas tree pictures.
In History, we have been learning about Mary Seacole, Florence Nightingale and Edith Cavell. The children pretended to be the nurses and helped care for one another in the same way these three amazing women did long ago.
In Science, the children have been learning about the changes in seasons from Autumn to Winter. We noticed that it gets much windier in the Winter months and looked at how the daylight hours change. The children created their own weather vanes and tried them out on the field.
We have had an amazing visit from two police officers to continue our learning about people who help us. The children came up with questions to ask the officers about their work and how they help people in our community. We were very fortunate to be able to explore the police van and hear the sirens. We learnt all about how to call the emergency services, when to call the police, what the police do day to day and how to become a police officer.
We have been working so hard this week! Well done everyone.
