Welcome back to another school year and a special welcome to all our new Reception children.
This term our topic is 'Shape.' There will be lots of opportunities to explore shapes all around us.
In Science, we will be changing the shape of water and looking at shapes in nature as autumn turns into winter. There are lots of artists who use shape in their work, so we will have fun trying to recreate some of their masterpieces! In PE, we will be using our bodies to create different shapes both in dance and gymnastics.
We look forward to showing you some photos of some of our work as the term goes on!

We went on a school trip to the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth with Class 2 and Pre school.
We saw so many different shapes and sizes of fish and sea creatures! We also got to meet a mermaid, who was very beautiful and told us a lovely story.

We went on a trip to Hannafore Beach. We were very lucky as it was a lovely sunny day. We had great fun looking in rockpools, making artwork out of things we found on the beach, collecting shells and pebbles to take back to school and litter picking. We are very pleased to be able to say that there was hardly any litter at all on Hannafore Beach. Duffy the Turtle could live here very happily, without any danger of swallowing things she shouldn't. We tried to remember the story of Marina the Mermaid which we listened to at Plymouth Aquarium. We threw shells in the sea to help her.
We followed a recipe to make sand clay.
We needed 2 cups of sand, 1 1/2 cups of flour and 1 1/4 cups of salt. Then we mixed it with some water to make a dough.
This is one of our finished sand prints.

When we got back to school, we used some of the 'treasures' we had found at the beach to make some lovely hand prints and name pebbles.
