Our topic for the Autumn Term is: 'Marvelous Me', please see below for our topic booklet.

2D Shapes! Auklet enjoyed moving their bodies to try and create 2D shapes in the hall.

Auklet loved joining Barn Owl Class with our Bonfire Night Craft! We had lots of different firework pictures!

Auklet's Autumn Inspired Focus Week - Welly walk, Harvest Festival at the Church, Pumpkin drawing, leaf printing, hedgehog building, Autumn spotting, pumpkin biscuit making

FOCUS WEEK

Please see the document below which details all the things Auklet class will be doing during Focus Week. 

Thank you to Michaela for visiting us from the Bruton Dental Practice! The children loved learning about how to brush their teeth properly, how long they should brush them for and some healthy and unhealthy choices for snack.

Auklet love counting with all kinds of objects and manipulatives. We've been matching numeral and quantity this week.

Colour mixing! The children have been busy painting their hands and mixing with a different friend. The children were amazed to see the colour change happen before their eyes. What great messy fun!

Auklet's writing is AMAZING! The grown ups are blown away every day :)

This week we had two visitors from the Frome Bee Association. They shared with us lots of facts about bees, looked at different types of honey, showed us the inside of a bee hive and the children helped build a honeycomb slice from foam tiles. Did you know that bees have 5 eyes? Thank you to Melanie and Ewan for expanding out Literacy learning of Rosie's Walk.

Something Special - Auklet Class have been showing off their 'special something' to the class, explaining why it is so precious to them.

Last year's Auklet class planted a courgette plant and over the summer it grew amazingly! The new Auklet children helped chop and peel the courgette and other vegetables to make a tasty veg soup. The children then had it for their afternoon snack, healthy and delicious!

Auklet have been busy learning their Talk4Writing story, Rosie's Walk! We drew a story map together and added in our own actions to re-tell the story. Why don't you ask your child to re-tell the story?

Sports Day!

Healthy body, healthy mind (Science week!) Auklet were busy doing some exercises outside. They then discussed how this changed their heart rate!

Come and Play session!

Friday afternoon saw lots of our lovely parents, grandparents and younger siblings come to school and get busy with their children. We had a go at making our own bird feeder, continue our painting in the style of Damien Hirst, planting outside in the flower beds, decorating biscuits, sharing our learning journals and all round fun! We are very grateful to have such supportive families and thank you so much for coming to share the afternoon with us.

Auklet had a wonderful trip to Mill on the Brue! We enjoyed looking at the vegetable that they grow and put into our tasty hot school dinners! Thank you to the team for showing us around and answering lots of questions, and a thank you to our lovely parent helpers.

Auklet have been busy with subtraction this week. Great work Auklet

Farmer Paul kindly brought in two of his lambs for Auklet class to stroke and feed! They were very cute and a little bit noisy at times. The children enjoyed asking lots of questions about what Paul does to look after them. A big thank you to Farmer Paul!

Addition! Auklet class love using lots of different objects to help answer addition questions.

This half term our story is 'Jasper's Beanstalk'. We have begun our learning by looking at the main character, Jasper! Everybody then painted their very own Jasper and helped stick on pieces of tissue paper to make a massive collage Jasper and his beanstalk. We think they look great.

As part of our new topic, Our Wonderful World, we have been getting our flower bed ready for some new plants. The children also helped pot up their pea plants into a bigger container. Great team work!

Circle Time

During circle time this week we worked in partners, having a go at copying each other's movements. One person was the leader and the other was the mirror. Auklet class were great at focusing on their partner, making sure they copied every movement.

As part of our Talk for Writing story The Enormous Turnip, the children tasted some turnip mash! We then wrote down whether we liked the taste of it or not.

World Book Day! Look at Auklet's class' great book characters designed from potatoes!

Also as part of World Book Day, the big children from Ibis class came to visit us! They came with lots of lovely stories in hand and shared a book with us, thank you very much Ibis class.

This week we looked at the story Little Red Hen makes a pizza! We looked at the similarities and differences between this version and the original. We then drew and labelled our own creations and then made our own tasty pizzas for our afternoon snack. They got a big thumbs up from Auklet class!

Little Red Hen

We have been busy learning the story of the Little Red Hen! The children can re-tell the story independently and with matching actions too. We have also been trying to change our voices for the different characters to show who is talking. The children's parents will be invited in after half term to join us as an audience. We look forward to sharing our learning with you

Bread Roll Making!

Today we turned into Little Red Hen's ourselves and were busy making bread rolls. The children were great at kneading the dough and turning into little balls ready to be baked. They couldn't believe how much the dough had risen whilst proving next to the radiator. We had so many we were able to have one for our afternoon snack, and one to take home! Delicious!

Addition

Auklet have been looking at addition this week. We started the week by thinking about what the symbols + and = meant in a number sentence. We tried to remember that with addition the numbers get BIGGER. We use the farm toys to help us with some tricky questions from a puzzled farmer. The farmer wasn't sure how many animals he had all together as they were in two different fields! The children were great at helping solve the problem. We've then moved on to using counters to help us solve an addition question. Great work Auklet class!

Remembrance

The children have made some beautiful poppies with Mrs Davis this week in preparation for Remembrance Sunday. A simple design but they look spectacular on our classroom windows. Miss Mileham and Miss Spraggs were very proud of the children during our Remembrance Assembly. The whole class stood so quietly and listened to the poems read out by the older children.

Writing

The children have been very keen to do some writing outside now that we have learnt our Phase 2 sounds. It has been lovely to spot new words written on the patio!

Author Visit!

We were very lucky to have Mike Brownlow, a children's author, come and visit us during We Love Reading Week! Mike read us his book, 10 Little Pirates and 10 Little Robots. Mike then showed the children how to draw one of his characters, stripy robot. We had to listen really hard to some instructions, such as, draw a square above the rectangle. The children did very well and we were all very proud of the children's artwork.

Harvest

Mrs Davis did some wonderful painting surrounding harvest. The children had a picture sheet, in which they had to tick off when they spotted the different harvest fruit and vegetables on their hunt outside. They then used apples to do some beautiful printing.

Run, run as fast as you can!

We have been looking at the gingerbread man story, we then made our own gingerbread people and decorated them with two eyes and a smiley face. Look out for pictures of our role play area turning into the baker's kitchen.

Our first PE session was a big hit! We played some listening games and practiced rolling a ball to our partner.
