We have been finding out about 2D shapes and we decided to celebrate Outdoor Classroom Day by using our outdoor area for a shape hunt. Working with a partner we set off to find out what 2D shapes we could spot in our outdoor areas. The digital cameras helped us record the huge variety of shapes we spotted and when we got back to our indoor classroom we looked at the photos we had taken and found out that we had spotted shapes in the most unlikely places!
That’s when Sunshine Class got busy making their very own fireworks in our Forest School session using autumn leaves, sticks, wire and flame-coloured ribbon.
This week we had our whole school Harvest Festival at St Laurence’s church in Stroud. We brought in food items for the food bank and after we had sung our songs our families kindly donated money to the “Send a Cow” charity. Some of us felt a bit nervous before performing but once we put on our harvest crowns we felt ready to sing our hearts out!
We are getting ready for our whole school Harvest Festival next week and we had lots of fun collecting autumn treasures in our Forest School area to create these lovely crowns. We will wear them at our Harvest Festival at St Laurence church.
This morning we all had a great time on a bouncy castle in the hall. There was lots of laughter and our Year 5 friends helped us keep count of our bounces.
We are having lots of fun in the school hall in our PE lesson with Vinny. Our listening skills are improving and we play lots of games to keep us active.
Every Friday afternoon we get together with our Year 6 Book Buddy to enjoy books together. For the first session the Year 6 children visited Sunshine classroom and this week Reception children had the opportunity to visit Year 6 classrooms. Our lovely new buddies helped us enjoy some picture books and we got to know them a bit better.
This week was our first session of Forest School with Mrs Priestley and Margaret. We put on our waterproof trousers and coats and went outside with our new class friends to explore. We all enjoyed our time in the great outdoors and the session ended with a yummy hot chocolate!
