We went on a walk to explore which signs of Autumn we could find.
We held a fundraising day, and took part in lots of 'Pudsey' themed activities.
One of the many ways we explored Bonfire Night was to listen to sounds and move in different ways as though we were fireworks.
We explored the celebration of Divali, and created our own lamps in our dough area.
Santa sent us a trainee elf to look after and he helped us to set up a workshop.
We enjoyed learning about lion and dragon dancing so much that we decided to get out some props and instruments and have a go ourselves.
One of our Catholic Life pledges was to share our love with others so we made some bunting for the residents of the belong village.
We cut out and flipped our own pancakes, then at snack time we got to try some real ones with a topping of our choice!
We all dressed up as book characters for World Book Day. All our activities linked to different texts.
We use the local area when we can, and one of our activities was to make, and post, invitations for our Teddy Bears to invite them into school. As we walked back we were lucky enough to meet our school's postal workers and find out about what they were doing.
Our Teddy Bears joined in with lots of activities over the week, and then we rounded it up with a Teddy Bear's tea party using cakes we had baked and decorated.
We planted bulbs in the Autumn and cared for them until Spring. Then we added surrounds and sold them to raise funds for Marie Curie.
We visited the school's new family of hens, and learned about how to care and feed them. We also collected eggs they had laid!
For Mother's Day the children were given the theme of 'Flowers'. It was up to them to decide how they wanted to represent this. They were supported to paint, stick, create, pick and buy for their mums.
Our Holy Week unit focused on how Jesus' disciples were feeling. We linked this to our music making and used tuned percussion to make happy and sad music.
As part of our exploration of 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' we set up our own sensory trail outdoors for the children to experience.
Our summer term Catholic Life Pledge has got us thinking about different materials and waste. Some of the children to set up our own class recycling points to help us reduce, reuse and recycle.
Our class saint is Mary. May is her special month, so we had a celebration day. In the chapel we learned that she is often called 'Queen of Heaven', so we crowned here and gave her flowers.
To mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee we had a whole school day of celebration. In Nursery we made crowns, twizzle sticks and decorated biscuits we had baked. We finished off with a foundation stage picnic outside!
The crossing patrol warden came to visit us and we learned how to cross safely.
Five tiny caterpillars have arrived for us to care for. We are wondering what might happen?
We held a book swap so that the children could choose a new story to share at home.
