Our Autumn 2 Journey

Week 1

Our start to learning this half term has been very exciting. On our first day back to school 'Disco Joe’s Magic Show' came to perform some magic tricks to us. We were absolutely amazed! Watch the video below to see how great he was!

Disco Joe left us a book about magic which we are going to be focussing on this half term it was called ‘Box of Tricks’. In the story the little girl, Ava turns into a magician.

We have been thinking about how to stay safe on bonfire night. We thought it was really important to wrap up warm and stay with a grown up, as well as wearing gloves to hold sparklers. The children watched a video of a firework display and talked about all of the different colours and noises they heard and saw. We used pastels, paints and shaving foam to make our own colourful firework pictures.

     

Week 2

When we came into school this week, our classroom provision areas had changed. Everything looked so magical! We have a potion making station, a clay table, a wizard's kitchen, our self serve drink dispensers and some exciting enhancements in the outdoor area.

On Monday 11th November we learnt about Remembrance Day. We thought about how brave the soldiers were and looked at where the poppy tradition came from. The video below helped us understand this further.

We were really excited to show our respect on this day by making our own poppies in a variety of ways.
