The first half of the Autumn term has been busy as the children have settled into their class routine. Work has started on our term project on Africa. The children have been working on the physical features of the continent, it's deserts and rivers. They have made and painted African' pots, created art reflecting the deserts of Africa, and will now be learning about the African rain-forests and also about the island of Madagascar and it's unique animal life.
Miss Susan, our Music teacher, has been teaching the class new songs linked to the project.
The children have also been learning about the Solar System, using props and music to celebrate 'The family of the Sun'. Children were given the part of different planets and danced around the child representing the sun to the song about the planets.
E2 made lovely Halloween 'cat hats'. On Friday before the half term break we joined E1 to learn about the Harvest Festival and eating lots of fruit and vegetables which the children all enjoyed.
I am happy to see that the class is settled, making useful choices and managing their work cycle effectively.
