Today we have talked about the process of making bread. We went right back to the farmer growing the wheat and how that then becomes bread. We all made our own sandwiches. We chose which toppings we wanted and then cut them in half. They were delicious!
As we are well and truly into Autumn we have been doing a lot of fun autumnal activities this week. We have developed our fine motor skills by cutting up different leaves found around the area. We developed our gross motor skills by painting pictures with natural paintbrushes. We loved this activity and enjoyed splatting the paper with large leaves and flowers. In our investigation area, we have been looking closely at Autumn leaves, conkers, pinecones and sticks with our magnifying glasses and tweezers.
Dancing in the rain
This week we have had some torrential rain. When we saw the rain lashing down we couldn't wait to get our wellies on and have a splash in the puddles. We had a great time and didn't mind getting wet at all.
We are special because...
This week we have talked about how we are special. We listened to several stories that talked about how we are all different and that makes us special. We had lots of circle times to talk about what makes us special and what we like about ourselves.
It was lovely to hear the children's answers. Have a look at some of the pictures of our work this week. I'm sure you will enjoy reading some of their answers as much as we did!
This term our topic is 'All About Me'. Through RE, circle times and our continuous provision we have been talking about similarities and differences between ourselves and our friends. This week we looked at our reflection. We talked about the different parts of our faces and how they differ from each other. We then created our own natural portraits using materials found outside. I'm sure you will agree we did a fantastic job and created some lovely pictures.
Can you make another portrait of yourself using items found around your house? Post any pictures on Tapestry as we would love to see them.

Over the past few weeks we have been settling into our classroom, we have been following our class rules and have been exploring all our exciting learning areas. This term we are focusing on developing our listening skills as well as our fine and gross motor skills. Have a look at the pictures below to see all the fun we have had.
