We read a book this week called The Squirrels who Squabbled. We really enjoyed this abook and talked all about it. We then sequenced the order of the story with pictures. 

We have learnt different ways of using paper. This will come in really handy on the creative table!

In our art lesson we talked about spiders and how they will be coming inside to keep warm out of the cold during Autumn and Winter months. We talked about what materials would be good to print spider pictures, we decided that a potato and wooden sticks would be perfect! 

This week we went on the other side of the school and tried out the new Muga pitch! It was very exciting! We got into groups and had a go at hopping. 

We have been learning about Autumn these past few weeks. We have made an Autumn table in the classroom and collected lots of coloured leaves, acorns and conkers. We have created some Autumn Tree art by ripping and tearing paper and adding leaves on using our fingerprints. It was great fun!

We have been enjoying our Funky Fingers activities most mornings. We complete a task each week with our groups. This could be winding elastic bands onto wooden sticks, threading tags through small holes or transferring beads onto boards. This is to help make our fingers stronger and help with our fine motor skills.
