Last week we introduced the topic of ‘My senses’. The children used their sense of sight to look at different fruit; they used their sense of touch to feel the fruit. They got to smell and taste some of the fruit too. We then used the fruit to make different faces. Look what we made!
Thanks you for all the textured show and tell objects that were brought in. The children had the opportunity to talk about their object to a small group of children. Many children were able to use vocabulary like ‘soft’ , ‘hard’, ‘bumpy’ and ‘spikey’.
Our highlight for this week was a visit from a guide dog. The children were told information about the importance of guide dogs and how they are trained to help others.
In RE our new topic is ‘Baptism’ and talked about it being a special time when we become part of God’s family. The children loved sharing their photo of their own Baptism. Lots of them couldn’t believe that they were the babies in the photo!! Thank you so much for sending those photos in and sharing the special memory with us.
Thank you to all the parents for attending Parents Evening. It was lovely to talk about the progress the children have made in the last 7 weeks!
Next term we will begin by talking about fireworks and Diwali.
