This week Badger Class have been learning about Harvest. The children have enjoyed finding out about where our food comes from and how it is harvested. The children were particularly interested in how scarecrows are used by farmers so we decided to make our own. We had a wonderful time and decided to name our scarecrow Sydney.
The children made their own mini scarecrows. We loved looking at each other’s creations and liked that hey were all unique!
Badger Class have had a fantastic start to their year in F2. We have been busy exploring the indoor and outdoor areas and making lots of new friends. We have settled well into full time school and Mrs Burton is really proud of us all.
Who knew learning could be so much fun!
Our topic this half term is 'Traditional Stories'. We have enjoyed listening to the stories of Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel , The Gingerbread Man and and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have been practising saying the stories in our own words and have taken part in a wide range of activities linked to these stories. We have particularly enjoyed reading new versions of these traditional stories and talking about how they are the same and how they are different. We read a funny story called 'Jack and the Incredibly Meanstalk' where the giant is a friendly giant who just wants to make friends but a very grumpy meanstalk gets in his way.
We had lots of fun building dens in our outdoor area this week. We had to work as a team and think carefully about the best materials to use. We named our creations 'Prospect Village'.
