Health and Wellbeing Week

Autumn 1

We have all been working really hard so far this term.



In Maths, we have been looking at place value. We have looked at the values of numbers, sequencing and more than and less than signs. We have also looked at addition and subtraction. 










We have been looking at labelling, captions and lists within out literacy lessons. We have also looked at including adjectives in our writing to make it even better. Last week, we went on a noun hunt around school to see what we could find. We learnt that a noun is a person, place or thing. Below are some of the nouns we found.

























We have been looking at our bodies and the senses. We drew around ourselves and labelled the parts of the body which was great fun. We have also learnt about the 5 senses;some of use even  got to taste new foods such as melon and mango.


















At the end of the term, we started looking at Autumn and how the weather changes from season to season. Below you can see some of the pictures from our Autumnal walk. 











We have been doing dance in our PE lessons around creative combat. We have been learning different moves and are now creating our own routines in pairs using what we have learnt. 










Our topic for this term has been harvest. We have been looked at what harvest is, foods that can be harvested, where they come from and what happens when our harvest fails. We have also looked at the Jewish harvest festival called Sukkot. We went on a vegetable hunt around school and were amazed how far some of our food had travelled. 










Our topic has been Me, Myself and I. We created collages with tissue paper and drew pictures of ourselves to create these amazing pictures.
