Oak Autumn 2

Autumn Festivals

Already this half term, the children have been working on a mini Topic of Autumn Festivals, the children explored the festivals of Harvest, Halloween, Bonfire night, Remembrance Day and Diwali. During that week, we have been exploring the world of poetry and creating different forms of poems about the festivals. The children created fantastic artwork which you can see from the wonderful photos.

The children have helped to design our garden boxes ready for planting so that we can help make contributions to the Harvest festival next year. For Halloween, the children learnt about the Mexican festival of Day of the Dead. The children created their own Skull designs. I think you would agree that the children’s work looks fantastic!

Space the final frontier!

This half-term Oak class will be exploring the realms of Earth and Space.

For the rest of the half term the children are going to explore the topic of Earth and Space. We are going to learn all about our planet and the solar system in Science. We are going to look closer at the countries on Earth and identifying them on maps and developing our map skills in Geography. We will be developing our printing and collage skills through this topic.

An extra exciting project that we will be working on this half term is a comic book project in English. We have already had a wonderful trip to the Dukes theatre, where we met Ben who showed us just how easy it is to develop our own comic book. The children are going to be looking at different examples of comics, how they are constructed and creating our own characters, plots and forming them into a comic.

A fantastic added extra this half term is we have More Music coming into school weekly for lessons on playing the ukulele. The children and adults have already been enjoying our lessons.

The children will continue to have Physical Friday, where they will develop their dance and football skills this half term.
