Autumn Term 2017

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!
Our new Reception children have all settled in happily and love our great outdoor learning area!
Look at some of the fun we have had in maths so far this term!
Harvest time is here! We have been thinking about different vegetables and cooked some delicious soup with some of them.
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 like to learn by working together!
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.
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.
Winter fun and getting ready for Christmas!
