Squirrels are off to space 🚀

This week in Squirrels we have continued our learning around this terms topic of ‘Earth and Space’. We made some fabulous painted planets for our displays including the sun and the earth using cling film to explore the paint. We also made our very own astronaut suits to fly off to space, have a look below.

Our first story of the term is ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear’ we begun by listening to the story all together and seeing if we could recognise the different animals in the story and then we all created our own Brown bears. Everyone did some amazing phonics work around our letter ‘b’ using our skills to recognise and match the ‘b’ objects.

Fun with Squirrels Class 🐿

This week we have continued to get to know our new environment and classroom. Everyone has done an amazing job and is so happy to come to school each day.

This week we started to have a look at our Topic this term which is ‘Day, Night, Earth and Space’ we have started off our first topic of the year by creating the different planets and this week we created our very own moon using oats and foil, everyone had lots of fun scrunching the foil and exploring the oats. We also had a great time this week at our first music session with Bev, singing different songs and exploring some of Bev’s drums, it was amazing to see everyone joining in and taking turns to have a go on the drums.

Finally this week we walked down to the forest for the first time together and everyone did a great job following the instructions to get there safely. We explored the forest and really enjoyed a lovely hot chocolate at the end before we came back to Squirrels class. Have a look below to see our fun week.
