October… has been another busy month in Room 5. We have been learning all about Autumn and The Farm. We painted Autumn leaves with beautiful Autumn colours. We have been taking advantage of the dry weather (when we get it) and have been going outside lots. We had a spooktacular time dressing up for Halloween

We use our whiteboards, chalk and playdough to practice writing our numbers, letters and sight words.

We have been learning about length, height and width in Maths. We made really long chains and towers with links and cubes. We measured each other with lollipop sticks (even Mrs Southard got measured!)

Listening to stories is a big hit in Room 5. We really liked The Little Red Hen, Farmer Duck, Room on The Broom, Grandad’s Farm and the fantastic story about 2 scarecrows, Betty O Barley and Harry O Hay in the great book- The Scarecrows Wedding. We hope you enjoy our pictures..

September …

Well done to all the girls for settling back into school life. They have all enjoyed meeting up with their friends again and being kept busy.

September has been a very busy month in Mrs Southard’s class, getting used to new routines and generally having great fun while learning. We have been doing the topic Myself. We had great fun with the game Operation, using play dough to make faces and playing the game Operation.

We love being outside and have been doing lots of P.E. outdoors, going on our September walk, writing our letters, sight words and numbers with chalk and visiting our little park.

We love singing and dancing too and especially enjoyed the story ‘ Pete The Cat ‘with its very catchy song!

For Friendship Week we teamed up with Mrs McAra’s 6th class for lots of activities, such as paired reading, making jigsaws and art.

The girls have been very busy doing lots of hands on activities and especially like jigsaws, construction and the odd game of Bingo!

We listened to the stories First Week At Cow School, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Don’t Eat The Teacher, Pete The Cat and Elmer.

We hope you all enjoy our pictures!
