Next Week…

Next week the children will be reading the story ‘After The Storm’ by Nick Butterworth. This is one of many lovely stories from the ‘Percy the Park Keeper’ series. As part of our learning in Literacy the children will be asked to sequence the events of the story, focusing on the beginning, middle and end.

Why not familiarise yourselves with the story by listening to it here.

Autumn Walk

 

The children went on an Autumn walk this week to have a look at how the environment changes during the seasons and collect leaves to bring back to class. We also went on a hunt to find spinning Jennys for the children to take home and play with.

Jacob went looking for his own leaves and spinning Jennys when he got home from school and brought them into class the next day to show his friends.

Hedgehogs

Image result for hedgehogImage result for hedgehog

We have been learning all about hedgehogs this week. We have read a story book called ‘The Very Helpful Hedgehog’ and read facts books to find out lots of information. We now know that hedgehogs like to eat worms and caterpillars and are awake at night when we are asleep. Animals that sleep in the day and are awake at night are called nocturnal animals. We have also found out that hedgehogs hibernate. This meas they sleep all winter!

What facts can you tell us about hedgehogs? Comment below with your ideas.

Bonfire night

This week the children have been discussing bonfire night. We talked about how to be safe around the bonfire, fireworks and sparklers. Some of the children’s suggestions were to stay close to Mummy or Daddy, wear gloves when playing with sparklers and not getting too close to the bonfire.

We have also been drawing our own firework pictures and writing the words we think of when we listen to fireworks. The children thought of words like pop, whoosh, boom, bang and fizz.

Knowsley Safari Park

Reception had the most AMAZING time at Knowsley Safari Park.

We saw lots of different animals and were lucky enough to see the tigers and the wolves (which we were told are very good at hiding and do not usually come out!)

We also saw elephants, rhinos and giraffes and were told how to spot whether an animal is a deer or an antelope. Can you remember what that was?

Watch the video below to see what a fantastic day we had, even if it was a bit soggy!
