Lime Class visited Harcourt Arboretum to take part in an “Amazing Autumn” workshop linked with their work on Seasons. The children explored the plants that grow there and also learnt how plants have adapted to their surroundings. The children enjoyed making hedgehog homes, being squirrels collecting pine cones and making crowns made from colourful leaves.
The children have been enjoying their weekly Yoga sessions.
This week, they used their senses when smelling and touching plants around us at this time of year. The plants were then incorporated into their yoga and mindfulness lesson.
We have had a lovely couple of weeks settling into Lime Class. The children have been learning about our classroom routines and getting to know the timetable.
We have been enjoying reading our text, “Tidy” by Emily Gravett. We already have some writing up on our Incredible Hulk work display!
In Science, we had an exciting lesson outside to see which objects give us shadows. This is part of our work on Light.
We have made a good start on our art work. We created textured pieces by doing bark rubbings and leaf collages followed by trees through the seasons.
