In our maths session we have been learning all about repeating patterns. We made patterns using colours, shapes, natural objects and even made repeating fruit kebabs! Lots of us continued our pattern work in continuous provision time too.
We noticed the apples on our apple tree were ripe and starting to fall off. We collected the good apples (making sure to check they weren't rotten) and washed them. We then helped to carefully cut them up, added some crumble mix to the top and cooked it in the oven. We enjoyed eating our apple crumble whilst listening to the poem about apples that we are learning as well as talking about other fruits that grow on trees.
One of our Key Texts this half term has been The Dot. It is a story about a little girl who doesn't think she is an artist, her teacher tells her to just do one dot and before long this leads to more dots and some wonderful artwork! We used this story to inspire our own paintings. We have been learning how to use our paint area and have learned a song to help us remember the instructions and language. We have loved exploring combining the colours! Take a look at our masterpieces being created!
The wet weather has given us the chance to practise our independent, self-care skills. We have been learning how to put on our waterproofs and wellies all on our own!
As well as exploring our indoor classroom we have also been exploring our outdoor one. We have been very busy moving, mark making and building in big ways. We have also done some sensory exploration with sand, water, foam and bubbles and worked cooperatively to build towers and obstacle courses
A new school year welcomes a new group of FS2 children to Athersley South. Starting full time school is a big event and we have been spending lots of time settling in and getting to know our new friends, teachers and classroom! There has been lots of exploring and learning going on already, take a look at a small selection of pictures of us learning inside.
