What We Learnt Last Half Term

Myths, Stories and Legends

Another great half term in the Doves! We had a wonderful time learning through our topic of ‘Myths, Stories and Legends’.

We have read the story of ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ and created lots of art work based on the story. We made our own monster faces and acted like monsters having a wild rumpus when in the studio. The children have matched pictures and explored props linked to the story.

We have really enjoyed exploring sensory materials and making marks in different materials. We love the light box and fluorescent sand. We can use different tools (including our bodies) to make marks.

In Music this half term, we have started to use chime bars. We have loved playing our instruments alongside Christmas songs and having a dance. We have been singing the Christmas songs beautifully and loudly! (Other classes have heard us!)

In Maths, we have looked for numbers and ordered them. We have been making sets and thinking about the size of objects.

The Doves are brilliant at following the leader in PE and waiting to take their turn. We love swimming and making waves when we are jumping around the pool!

Languages Day was brill! We tasted different food, listened to an Oompah Band and even found the witches’ house in the woods…and had treats when we got there.

We loved thinking about Christmas and getting ready. We have read lots of Christmas stories. I do hope that you like the Christmas treats the children have made for you. We may have got a bit messy but have enjoyed ourselves along the way.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year.
