Term 1 2019/2020
A new year begins here in Oak class and we have had great fun. We have been exploring our senses through the theme of ourselves. This week we have been looking at eyes and we have a wonderful visit from Specsavers. We tried on lots of glasses, sketched ourselves wearing glasses, asked lots of great questions and we were lucky enough to have a goodie bag each.
The last two weeks we have been learning all about our bodies. We have been reading the story funny bones and we have been making dark dens, paper skeletons, houses on the dark, dark street and much more. We have learnt all about bones and our skeletons and we even made a life size skeleton out of recycled items and paper mache.
This week we have been reading the story the enormous turnip. We designed soup labels for our very own homemade carrot and parsnip soup. We cut and mashed our vegetables as a class, this helped us understand the stages of soup making. We have been acting out the story and singing vegetable songs. We also had a very exciting visit from Theodore's mum who is an audiologist, she taught us all about hearing tests and the importance of healthy ears. We even got to see inside the teacher's ears.
Food and festivals is our new half term focus here in Oak class. This week we have been exploring fruit and veg through the text 'Oliver's Vegetables'. Our role play area has transformed into a cafe, where we have served delicious meals and worked on our addition when paying for foods. Our home corner has been exciting as we have acted out 'Tesco home deliveries'. We have been exploring the artwork of Giuseppe Arcimboldo and created our own versions using real fruit and vegetables.
Term 2 2020
This term we are learning all about pirates. (Pirates out at Sea) is our new topic. This week we have been learning all about sinking and floating and testing which shape ship can hold the most treasure. We have learnt all about the important parts of a ship and made pirate hats to wear whilst sailing the famous Oak class ship.
We have had a fantastic few weeks exploring pirates. We have been real actors and actresses, performing our class stories to pre school and parents. We have been writers and have created our own version of Pirate Pete and made our own class story book full of illustration and role play pictures. We have been crafty making water colour pirates, eye patches and swords. We even had a mysterious visit from some sky pirates, they left clues and messages in bottles. We then followed the clues to hunt for chocolate treasure.
