What We Learnt Last Half Term

Myths, Stories and Legends

The Skylarks have been working hard this half term on our topic ‘Myths Stories and Legends’. We have looked closely at the stories ‘The Three Little Pigs’, ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We have read the stories in lots of different setting both in and outdoors and have enjoyed exploring materials and props. We particularly enjoyed making and exploring porridge every week in Sensory Food.

The Skylarks have worked really closely with Sally Thornley this half term. She has been coming to class to support our ‘Play My Way’ sessions. The children love these sessions and are beginning to play more independently with a much wider range of toys. Some of the children have been lucky enough to spend some time in the Play Room which they have loved.

Our Languages Day this term was based around Germany. The children loved listening to the Oompah Band that came to visit school. We also explored Apple Strudel and went on a sensory trip through a German forest.

Christmas has come to the classroom and the children have had a ball. We have made snowmen and reindeers, Christmas cards, calendars, party hats and placemats. We’ve glued, painted and printed and used our body weight in glitter – it has been great fun. The children are really looking forward to our Christmas party and of course our visit off Santa.

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

The Skylarks.
