As part of our topic Where shall we go? we have been learning about our local area of Royal Wootton Bassett. We used a bus to help us add and subtract numbers and we built our own vehicles. We walked to the shops to buy the ingredients for our picnic which we ate in school after exploring the field! Everyone made their own sandwiches to eat on the picnic.
We celebrated World Book Day by coming to school dressed as out favourite chapters. We also met the author Paul Stickland who came to read some of his amazing Pop-Up books to us. 🦖🦕
During term 3 we learnt all about different colours. We explored patterns and what happens when we mix colours together. We learnt about Chameleons and how they use camouflage. Another favourite story was The Rainbow Fish. We looked at different textures and explored how different patterns can be made in clay to create our very own Rainbow Fish. We were also very excited to visit the Art Department at the secondary school and see some incredible art work. It was just like going to a real art gallery!
During term 2 we have been learning about “Fantastic Festivals”. Together we celebrated Harvest Festival, Bonfire Night, Diwali, Remembrance Day, Birthdays, Thanksgiving and Nativity. We had a fantastic visit from Jade who helped us to paint our very own Diva Lamps and taught us a fun Indian dance. We helped Mr Oakes to celebrate his birthday by making cards and hats and singing him Happy Birthday. To end our term we performed “Follow the Star” to our grown ups.
Building Site Visit
We were very excited to visit our building site. We got to look at all of the equipment, look at how the bricks were laid, and we got to help dig the foundations! What an amazing day!
To celebrate harvest festival in Owls and Cygnets, we read the story of The Little Red Hen and made our own bread rolls.
This term our topic has been 'Only One Me!' where we have been thinking about how we are all special. We have looked at similarities and differences between each of us.
We have also been learning about the routines of school and making new friends!
