This week we have designed and created our own pumpkin designs in Foxes Class. We had some very creative ideas!
On Friday Foxes Class had a fantastic trip to Morven Park for a dinosaur hunt! It was great to see the children running around so enthusiastically using their orienteering skills to find the hidden dinosaurs around the park.
After the hunt the children had a play on the park. All of the children played beautifully together and had big smiles all day. What a way to end our first half term together!
This week in Foxes the children have all become paleontologist! The had to create their own fact sheet which has gone in a class book all about different dinosaurs.
Once the children had researched their chosen dinosaur and learnt some facts, we used green screening to record our new knowledge! IT was amazing to see the children speaking with such confidence and they all had so much fun doing the recording. I'm sure you will love the clips just as much as the children.
Considering this week was only a short week, we still managed to fit in lots of exciting things in Foxes Class.
We made herbivore cups using lots of different vegetables and humus. They were very tasty and we think the dinosaurs would have loved them. Although we might have had to make them a bit bigger to feed some dinosaurs!
We also made some doves of peace in RE and the children told me about all of the kind things they do for others and the kind things others do for them. It was so lovely to hear!
This week in Foxes Class we have been using atlases to help us to find out where dinosaurs lived and how the earth has changed since the times of the dinosaurs.
It has been great to see the children sharing ideas and working together.
This week the Foxes have been looking at and learning about shapes.
We were so impressed at what the children could tell us about different 2D and 3D shapes and when the children went on a shape hunt, they were even better than the adults! The children made some lovely images with their shapes and then started to sort them based on different properties!
All of the children in Foxes Class are really working hard on our Dinosaurs topic. This week we researched some dinosaurs and wrote facts that we found really interesting.
In cooking we made some 'Dinosaur Mud Cups'. The children thought these were very tasty and even the dinosaurs wanted to try them!
We have had another busy week in Foxes this week.
In English we have been looking at the story 'Chalk'. There were no words in this story so we had to write them ourselves!
We also baked some lovely Dinosaur Footprint biscuits which looked and tasted fantastic.
What a lovely start back we have had in Foxes.
The children shared all of their exciting stories from over the 6 week summer break which was lovely to hear. They children enjoyed asking each other questions about what they all got up to.
This half term we will be learning about dinosaur in our topic lesson and the children did some fantastic talking about what they already know and what they are excited to find out about.
In science we are going to be looking at the human body. This week we learnt about different food groups and enjoyed tasting some examples from each. Some food groups were much more popular than others!
