Autumn 1 Topic - The Enchanted Forest


Our Class Diary 2020-2021

Week Commencing 7th September 2020

We had our first week in Lavender class. We  had fun getting to know all of our new friends and teachers. We enjoyed reading a book called 'While we can't hug.' We made pictures of the main characters. We also did lots of counting in maths and we started to learn how to form our letter shapes correctly. 

Week Commencing 14th September 2020

This week we read a book called ‘Brown bear, brown bear what do you see?’ We thought about animals that were not in the story so that we could make up our own book pages following the same word patterns. In maths we worked on counting forwards and backwards to 20 at first and then to 100. In the afternoons, we started our new topic all about the enchanted forest. We went on a walk around school to look at the trees, leaves, flowers and wildlife. We also tried hard to identify some of the leaves and we measured the circumference of trees to try and work out their ages. We think we have a tree that is over 100 years old! We also went bird watching and we made tree boggarts out of clay.
