Our Learning - Autumn term 2
This term our learning theme is Light and Dark as well as Celebrations. We will be reading the following books to help us with our learning.
We continued with our learning theme of Celebrations as learnt about Weddings this week. We talked about different wedding traditions and the meaning of everlasting love symbolised in wedding rings. We explored different parts of a church, knowing that we can ask Jesus to help people get married too. We learnt the Bible story, The Marriage Feast at Cana, where Jesus turned the water into wine. We explored tipping and pouring to recreate this. Can you see us in our wedding clothes? We loved role-playing a special wedding day.
Christ the King Day was another success this week! The children made crowns, Christmas decorations and bought toys, treats and chose a lucky dip bag, created by their friends. It was a fun day where we celebrated with dancing and games.
This week we read the story Postman Bear by Julia Donaldson. We talked about our own experiences of birthday celebrations and made playdough cakes to represent this. We also had fun celebrating Diwali by making Diwa lamps out of clay. Look at all our beautiful creations. We sang "This little light of mine" as we thought about the festival of lights. To follow on with our learning of Postman we mixed different paint colours to make brown and painted bear faces using different tools such as brushes and forks.
We loved learning about the story Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. We created magic wands and enjoyed waving them whilst saying different spells! We folded paper to create broomsticks and added glitter to make them look magical. We were able to retell parts of the story with an adult, naming characters and talking about their good or bad personalities.
