What We Learnt Last Half Term

People, Places and Planets

The Canaries have had a busy but exciting half-term getting settled in our class, and learning about our topic, ‘People, Places and Planets’.

This half term we have been reading the story of ‘Aliens Love Underpants’, we loved finding out about different aliens, and even making our own alien out of paint, felt and clay!

We have also been exploring ‘The Gruffalo’. We even went on a Gruffalo trail, to hunt for the Gruffalo at Chadderton Park! We had a fantastic time finding the mouse, snake, owl and the Gruffalo himself! The sun was shining, and we had to work together to build a den, find the clues and follow the mouse’s trail. We even had a picnic!

In Music we have been learning to take turns on the drums. We have all really enjoyed Music and Movement sessions.

Our Maths sessions have been exciting as well! We have been using the light boxes to explore different objects and shapes, to see if they are big or small.

We have also been started to learn all about relaxation this half term through our yoga and meditation sessions.

We have been learning about our environment and where different areas are around school, we have been using our class iPad to find our way!

After all that hard work, the Canaries deserve a restful break! See you next half term.
