We enjoyed singing songs for Autumn and Harvest time and learning all about Harvest being a time when Christians say thank you to God for their food and the wonderful world that God has made.
The Little Red Hen
We have loved sharing our action story 'The Little Red Hen’ retelling the story from memory, using our class story map.
We had so much fun playing the characters in our story and kneading bread, just like our story character! We described the bread mixture and baked our own delicious bread!
In PSHE we helped Jigsaw Jenie to have gentle hands. She forgot to use her gentle hands and we helped her to say sorry and find a better way to play with her friends. We talked about what we can do and say when we feel ourselves getting angry or is someone is hurting us. We thought of lots of ways we are kind and gentle and enjoyed making a kind handprint in our special class book! 🌟
Amazing Autumn! 🍁
We loved exploring out school grounds for signs of Autumn 🍁We saw golden, yellow and brown leaves that twirled and whirled from the trees. “Autumn tree, leaves are yellow, gold and brown””The leaves fall down”. What fun!
We had lots of fun making conker artwork, Autumn mobiles and Autumn bunting in Early Years 🍁
Our Autumn patterns 🍁
On 'Forest Friday' we went on an Autumn hunt, collecting 'Autumn treasures' from our school ground and used wow words to describe what we saw! We enjoyed describing all the beautiful colours we saw golden, orange and brown. We loved exploring Autumn leaves by throwing them in the air and watching them twirl and whirl through the wind! 🍁
We loved sharing our action story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ and creating our very own class story map. Lots of children enjoyed our creative challenge to create their very own story map.... just look at our amazing work!
We’re Going on a Bear Hunt! Thank you to all our parents/carers who joined us for our exciting Bear Hunt adventure this afternoon!
We went on a bear hunt in PE! Can you guess which part of the story we used?🐻
We’re Going on a Bear Hunt
"We're going on a bear hunt; we're going to catch a big one!" What a wonderful adventure, we loved going on a bear hunt! We loved making our own brilliant binoculars for our exciting adventure and learning our action story by heart. 🐻
International Fairy and Elf Tea Party
We loved celebrating international fairy and elf tea party, a day to celebrate the children's play and imagination around the world.
We loved finding our school on the world map and sharing the day with countries from around the world! We went on an adventure to our school forest to find our very own special wands and created magical spells! We found some special visitors inside our classroom and out! 🧚♀️
We loved taking part in our very first PSHE lesson with jigsaw Jenie. We enjoyed singing our song 'Together as One' and learning that in some ways we are the same but in others we are different. That is what makes the world & Torrisholme school a wonderful place to be. Jigsaw Jenie is a UNIQUE Jigsaw Friend. 💙
The Colour Monster
This afternoon we loved sharing our story ‘The Colour Monster’ by Anna Llenas 🌟 One day, Colour Monster wakes up feeling very confused. His emotions are all over the place; he feels angry, happy, calm, sad, and scared all at once! We then enjoyed discussing how do we feel and why? “I feel loved, my mummy and daddy play with me” “I feel happy, I like coming to school”. How do you feel today?
Our beautiful family chandelier!
The children have loved sharing their family strand with all their friends! Thank you to all our parents/carers for taking the time to create your special family strand at home 💙
What a happy Friday! We took part in our first celebratory assembly with our school family and our Year 6 buddies came to visit and gift us with our very own Torrisholme care bear! Learning together, to care for ourselves, each other and the world!
We loved meeting our Year 6 buddies today!
What a fun way to start the afternoon! It’s DOUGH DISCO time! Go Reception! What a fab way to get our fingers moving! 🌟
Why do dough disco? This activity helps to strengthen children's fine motor muscles to enable them to develop their pencil grip which in turn will help to develop their writing skills. But most of all it's fun!
Have a try at home…
Look at our amazing writing! The children have shown a great attitude and we are so proud of them all. Well done, Reception! 🌟💙
