Golden Moments

Since we have come back after the half term break, The children in ARP have been working extremely hard.

Last week’s superstars were Isaac and Freddie. Isaac has been showing super recognition of his phonic sounds and is always trying his best in all lessons. Well done Isaac! We are very proud of Freddie in ARP for always showing his good sitting in the classroom. Super thinking all the time – Well done Freddie!

Aiman and Carlo have amazed Miss Rea in the classroom this week with their fabulous teamwork skills to help each other with their Maths work. Great work!

Feed the birds!

This afternoon, we went to the woods to make some bird feeders for the birds. We used pipe cleaners and Cheerio cereal to make our feeders. We carefully threaded the cheerios onto the pipe cleaner until we couldn’t get any more on. The grown ups helped us to tie them so none would fall off and we hung them on the trees. Next week we shall see if the birds enjoyed their food.

Harvest

Over the last few weeks, the children in ARP 1 have been having lots of fun learning their song for Harvest – Big Red Combine Harvester. They have learnt the actions to the song to help them remember.

As part of our Art this week, we painted our very own big, red combine harvesters and made them into headbands ready for our performance.

We went over to the gym on Wednesday to record our singing and signing. There were pretty flashing lights there while we performed. Don’t we look great in our headbands!

The access code will be given to parents so they can watch the performance.

Well done everyone!

Grow your own!

The children have really enjoyed their time in the garden over the last few weeks and they have proven themselves to be such super helpers when it comes to maintaining our allotment.

We decided that the most important thing about gardening is being safe. We use lots of tools and equipment so we need to know how to handle them correctly and what to do when we have finished.

Firstly, the children cleared out the overgrown areas and removed weeds and any plants that had stopped growing now that it is Autumn. “The leaves have gone brown and falling on the floor” said Freddie.

“The sunflower is falling” said Noah when he spotted the sunflower drooping now that the flowering period is over.

Once the allotment was clear, the next important job to do was to chose which vegetables to plant which would successfully grow in Autumn and Winter.

Aiman chose “orange gloves” to wear to keep her hands clean.

Freddie said “Let’s plant some seeds, I don’t like onions, but I will put some seeds in and watch them grow!”

Noah said “Oooo! I like planting. I will chose cauliflower!” He also thought that “The seeds are small and black”

Oskar asked for more “soil please!” as he was filling his pot

When the children finished planting their seeds, they carefully placed the pots in our greenhouse. Each day they have been taking it in turns to water the plants and check the pots for any signs of growth!

Wonderful woods.

We have enjoyed exploring the woods since we have been back at school. Lots of things have changed since we were last here. The trees are still full of leaves at the moment, but they are slowly changing colours and getting ready to fall as we approach autumn.
