Our new exciting topic for the Autumn Term is 'The Enchanted Woodland' and Class 3 have already been full of ideas about what they would like to learn about to link with this topic. The children have been thinking of some questions which they would like to answer, and these have been displayed in our 'Investigation Area' in class (see photo below). We are looking forward to finding out the answers to these questions, which range from being about trees, leaves, woodland animals and even magical fairies!
This term we will be reading books by the famous children's author, Julia Donaldson, and lots of our language and topic work will be derived from these. This week we have been reading 'The Gruffalo' and the children enjoyed writing 'captions' for their chosen Gruffalo character. This is our 'Language Working Wall' that the children have been using this week to help them with their caption writing...
The children have also been helping to plan activities to link with the Gruffalo story for our 'areas' in class (Writing Area, Maths Area, Investigation Area, Small World & Construction) and outdoors, which they will complete during 'Sparkle Time' (enhanced provision). I am sure the children are going to have lots of fun completing these, and I am looking forward to seeing and hearing their wonderful creations!
We had a great first session in our woodland area on a lovely sunny afternoon. The children enjoyed hunting for the Gruffalo characters who were hiding in the woods! They also enjoyed collecting interesting woodland items, building a den for the Gruffalo and making 'Gruffalo Crumble'! Here are some photos ...
Enjoy singing along with this catchy Gruffalo song at home!
