This week in Class One, we have been thinking all about people who help give us food. We thought about farmers in their fields harvesting all of the crops and we began to think a little about harvest time, ready for our Harvest whole-school activities in two weeks’ time. We also thought about our lovely school cook, Mrs Harrington Smith and we thought about how she has to make all of our dinners nice and healthy for us. We had great fun dressing up in her clothes and we also used paper plates, tissue paper and glue sticks to create our own healthy meals. We also had play tea parties and looked at some new foods such as asparagus, aubergines and how it’s good to try new things!
In PE we have been outside with Mr Smith taking part in lots of circuit training activities. We’ve been looking at throwing and catching, balancing and getting our heart rate up. We’ve also looked at the physical effects on our body when we are puffed out.
We have Lots of amazing sports people. Well done children.
In other news, we have been busy watching our playground leaves change on the playground over the last few weeks and we began to think about seasons and how we are in now autumn. On Thursday we took the children on a lovely autumn walk; the sunshine was shining for us as we searched for autumn leaves, conkers and other natural autumn objects in our local area. (The children even saw some Canadian Geese which they were very interested in!) Our autumn objects from the walk were put to good use today when we did some amazing autumn art work! We painted around leaves and conkers, made salt dough autumn objects and hedgehog pictures with spikes made of crunchy leaves, the children had great fun getting creative.
Please could we ask you said your child in with just one piece of fruit/ vegetable at playtime please. Sadly we only have fifteen minutes for our morning play and we like them to have time to eat and go and play with their friends!
Have a great weekend everyone and see you on Monday!
