Autumn 1 - Week 1
In our topic sessions this week we have been sharing our memory board we made over the summer holidays. We have had lots to share with our new class and this has helped us to:
- get to know each other.
- use our listening and communication skills.
- build up our confidence, speaking in front of the class
- share our likes, dislikes and opinions with each other.
Our main focus this week is to build up positive relationships with our peers.
Autumn 1 - Week 2
This week we have used our Topic sessions to prepare for our exciting year ahead as Herons! We have taken part in activities such as:
- creating our class rules.
- discussing what we want from our teachers.
- discussing what we have liked from our first week in F2.
- setting our targets and discussing what we want to achieve this year.
- designed our target envelopes to store all of our targets that we achieve.
- chosen our adVENTURErs activities.
Autumn 1 - Week 3
This week our learning has been focussed around the traditional tale, The Little Red Hen. We have enjoyed reading and discussing the story. During our Topic sessions we have made The Little Red Hen handprints, discussed the story, events and characters and even made our own bread rolls to help The Little Red Hen - tasting them too!
Autumn 1 - Week 4
In Topic we have continued our learning of The Little Red Hen story. This week we have discussed;
- What it means to be a good friend
- What makes a good friend
- Whether the characters acted in the right way
- Whether the characters were good friends.
- What the characters could have done differently
- What we liked/disliked about the story
- What the characters were like
We even made our own posters to show the traits of being a good friend. Take a look on our class blog page to see some of our thoughts and opinions of the story. (heron2018.norbridgeblogs.net)
This week we have also started to grow our own Wheatgrass to help out The Little Red Hen to make her bread. We used cotton wool balls, a plastic cup, wheatgrass seeds and water to 'plant' our wheatgrass. Check our Twitter page to see regular updates on the growth of our Wheatgrass. (@HeronClass)
Autumn 1 - Week 5
This week in Topic we have linked our learning to The Three Little Pigs story. We have been discussing the different materials the pigs used to build their own houses and then constructed our own. Take a look at some of our houses below.
Autumn 1 - Week 6
We have continued to learn about The Three Little Pigs this week, performing and using drama to think about and recreate the story. We have discussed the character's and their movements to recreate the story. You can see some of our acting below! As we have focussed on the character's in the story, we also created a WANTED! poster for The Big Bad Wolf to help us to describe the wolf.
Autumn 1 - Week 7
This week our learning has been based around the book 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. We are really enjoying this story and we love to join in; especially when the goats go trip-trapping over the bridge!
This week we have made our own bridges to help the goats cross the river. We then spoke about the different methods and ways we could cross a river including boats, rafts, the fox's head (from the gingerbread man) and of course a bridge. We decided to make our own boats, choosing our own materials carefully, testing them to see if they float!
Autumn 1 - Week 8
This week we have continued reading our story 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. We have discussed where some of our foods come from and the produce that Goats give us. From this, we tasted Goats milk and Goats cheese. Most of us enjoyed it as it tastes just the same as milk and cheese from a cow!
We identified foods from other animals too. These were;
