Wonderful Woods!

We had a fantastic time together this afternoon down in our woodland area working hard to learn about changes in the seasons.

First, Mrs Bell reminded us of the important rules we have to follow to keep us safe. 

Our first task was to use our different senses to talk about what we could hear and see.   We talked about how the woods have changed over the Summer and how they look now at the beginning of Autumn.

We closed our eyes and listened carefully. 

We can hear…   cars, lorries, a bird and the wind rustling the trees.

We can see…  tall and short trees, bugs under the logs, brown and yellow leaves. 

After a quick game of Hide and Seek, our next task was work in small groups to go on a scavenger hunt to look for different things.  The older children helped the younger children – what fantastic teamwork!

Can you see Alfie finding lots of different types of slugs?!

Making mud cakes in the kitchen!

We were brave when climbing trees!

We loved to make music with the instruments.

Our first week in ARP…

We have had a fabulous time settling into our new classes with our new friends and adults.  Take a look at some of the fun activities we have been doing!

In ARP 1, we followed the clues to find our new topic book ‘Dogger’. Over the next few weeks, we will use colourful semantics to find out all about our new book.

In English, we have been working hard using sounds we already know to make words and practising spelling and reading high frequency words.


In Maths, we have been sequencing numbers, recognising numbers, counting and using manipulatives to represent numbers. 

During busy time, we have enjoyed spending time with our friends building towers in the construction area, listening to stories in our reading area, selling toys in our role play area, being artists and playing in the outdoor area!

In ARP 2, we enjoyed investigating our new classrooms and spent some time getting to know our new adults and friends. 

We have enjoyed lots of fun lessons!

Teamwork in P.E.

Showing our fantastic knowledge of place value in Maths. 

Planning our cooking lesson… and the best bit – making an apple and blackberry pie!

We enjoy relaxing while doing Brain Gym and waking up to Super Movers!

One of our favourite parts of the day is spending time together at lunchtimes!
