Sorry we’re a little late blogging everyone! We have been very busy!

Last week we have been trying NEW things just like the twirlywoos!

We got very messy whilst exploring new textures such as the oublix and foam wash:

Hollie – 10/10/16 (am)

“it feels like chewing gum” Talking about the oblix

Mushira – 12/10/16 (am)

“my hands are like snowman” Exploring the foam.

Rosie– 10/10/16 (pm)

“it’s very slimy and it looks like rain when it falls off your hands” Enjoying the oblix lifting her hands up and down.

Bibby– 12/10/16 (pm)

“it’s squidgy”   “cold”

“It’s staying sticky”    “My hands are soft”

Talking about the foam and how it feels.

In P.E. we have been playing with the big parachute! We played the cat and mouse game and the colour game.

The cat and mouse game is where one child has to go under the parachute (mouse) and another child goes on top (cat) and the cat needs to try and catch the mouse whilst the other children shake the parachute to make waves to hide the mouse.

Harry 12/10/16 (am)

“quick quick she’s getting away! Ha ha ha”

Lots of giggling! Cheering on his friend!

Santiago 12/10/16 (pm)

“Oh No, It’s a shark coming”

Pretending there was a shark amongst the waves!

The colour game is where a grown-up will say a colour and if your holding that colour you need to walk under the parachute to switch places with another child before the parachute falls back down. It was very funny as some of us got lost underneath as we weren’t quick to get out.

Sarah 12/10/16 (am)

Sarah got stuck under the parachute and tried to get out through the little hole in the middle.

“Out Out”

It was very funny as you could only see the top of her head, hehe!

Last week we learnt a new nursery rhyme ‘one elephant went out to play upon a spider’s web one day’. We learnt this at circle time and we all join in to do a group activity using elephants and some of us got to hold the elephants and be part of the song.

We have been learning about spiders as well and we have been making our own spiders out of dough, googly eyes and sticks. As well as having spiders in the dough we have had a really fun board game on the table called ‘insey winsey spider’, most of the us have given the game ago and have done some lovely turn taking and fantastic counting with the dice.

Outside we have been drawing spider webs and spiders on the floor and on black sugar paper, riding the bikes and we have learnt to wait for our turn and to share with each other.

The afternoon children have had a very SPECIAL visit this week, Pudsey Bear came into our classroom to say hello.


This week we have been learning all about autumn… We have been on a wellie walk to search for autumn leaves, conkers and twigs, we have used these to make autumn pictures using leaves, sparkles and lentils. We also made some fantastic paintings using conkers by rolling them over paper (conker rolling), you can find some of them on our autumn display at the back of the classroom. We have just started our leave printing and hopefully some pictures will be up around the classroom soon.

In P.E we learnt a new song ‘autumn leaves are falling’ and re-told the story ‘we’re going on a leaf hunt’ by moving around the room acting out parts of the story.
