This month we learned all about recycling and read stories about Michael Recycle and his enemy Litterbug Doug. We also brought lots of our recycling into school and made some cool junk art with the materials. Take a look at our creations.
We love our fruit on Fridays. We got to try lots of different kinds of fruit including apples, oranges, raspberries, strawberries, pineapples and grapes.
Unfortunately we couldn't get outside for P.E today. Instead we practised lots of our action songs in the classroom and took part in a really fun yoga session!
Last week we went to the computer room. We are learning how to use the mouse to navigate our way through Letterland.
Our Aistear theme for the last 2 weeks has been Halloween. We have been working in five different play stations.
In the Role Play corner we have been making potions in the haunted house. We have been using lots of new language and talking about all the ingredients we are adding to the cauldron. We took turns being the witch and casting spells on each other!
In our creative area, we have been practising our cutting and construction skills to make our own spooky skeletons!
We have been working as archaeologists in the sand area. We used special brushes to excavate the site and have found lots of skeleton bones hiding in there!
In the construction area, we have been working together to build haunted houses and tall towers to lock the witch in!
In our other creative area, we have been working with the playdough and halloween playdough mats. We used our hands and playdough tools to make pumpkins, brooms, stars, spiders and halloween treats.
This month we have been working on making and extending patterns. We are getting really good at it, just look at these!
We have been learning all about Autumn and the changes in our environment. Last week we went on an Autumn Hunt to find some of the signs of Autumn that we had been talking about. We found lots of things on our list including, brown, yellow and orange leaves, a bare tree, conkers and berries. We are still keeping our eyes peeled for some fungi and a squirrel!!!
