The Clever Kittens have now settled well into their exciting adventures of school life at Redscope.
Our first topic theme has been ‘Marvellous Me’ and we explored all about our feelings through the book ‘The Colour Monster’. We mixed colours together to make new colours to paint a Colour Monster and we also molded clay with our fingers to create our own 3D Colour Monster.
We looked in the mirror and used our fine manipulative skills and used tools and techniques to craft our own portrait. They are all mounted on display in our classroom.
We went on an Autumn walk to Barker’s Park. On our walk we had the opportunity to notice different aspects of the outdoor environment in our local area and changes in the season. We found brown, orange, red leaves, conkers, acorns and all natural materials we could use to create an Autumn collage. We also had a ‘listening moment’ to listen for sounds around us whilst walking in the woods. We tried to name and describe the sounds we heard to help us in our phonics learning. We could hear the birds tweeting and the wind making the leaves on the trees rustle. We used our senses to notice different sights, sounds and smells.
We have loved listening to stories in different places around us, in the classroom, at the park, outside and Everyone Reading a story In Class (ERIC).
