We explored pumpkins, thinking about how they looked and felt. We sorted them for different attributes – some of them were so big and heavy but others were small and light. We bobbed for apples too. 🍎 🎃
We spent time in October investigating Bats and discovered some really interesting facts as well as creating some atmospheric artwork.
Thanks so much to the school Wellbeing Committee who provided our class with beautiful mindful colouring sheets. We really relaxed while we were colouring them 💞
We’ve had a great time in Crann Darach exploring the Under the Sea theme for Maths Week 2022 – we used two exciting books to help us with sorting, categorising, sequencing and time -since Tiddler was always late! We developed our language and communication through identifying and describing sea life. The highlight of the week was an amazingly messy sensory sea experience.
We celebrated national Lámh Day on Wednesday 19th October by signing “hello” to everyone we met. Well done to all the staff and children who signed back – let’s keep it going all year! 👏 🙌
In Crann Darach, we are trying to follow a recipe every Friday. So far we have made a fruit salad, chocolate apples and smoothies but our favourite might just be the mini Donuts we perfected last week. We had one or two egg-cracking experts and all of our mixing skills are superb. Most importantly, we are really excellent at waiting patiently while our food cooks.
We were so excited to have our first P.E. session on the new astro pitch! We’ve never kicked the ball better! ⚽️
In Crann Darach, we each have our own colour. We had lots of fun exploring our colours and investigating the rainbows in our room through stories, songs, poems, art, toys, etc. September was a great month for spotting rainbows outside our classroom window. 🌈 🌧☀️
We spent a week learning about the life cycle of an apple. We painted a still life with an apple, looking closely at how the colour changed. We made bright red apples for the windows using the laminator. We ended the week by following instructions to make delicious chocolate apples.
