In Maths we have been working hard to recognise shapes in a range of different scenarios. We were able to hop and jump to the correct shape when the music stopped and we also did some cutting and sticking, matching shapes and finding other similar shapes too.

We took part in a range of different activities on Remembrance Day. We decorated poppy biscuits, played with red and black toys and talked about the significance of the colours and we made poppies out of plasticine. We also used tissue paper to collage paper plates and turned them into poppies.

Learning about Autumn gave us the perfect opportunity to explore some seasonal fruits and vegetables - getting messy and investigating the insides of a pumpkin was great fun! We also created spiky leaf hedgehogs and sang songs about autumn leaves, joining in with the actions.

Our topic this half term has been 'Plants'. We spent lots of time learning about the parts of each flower and planting seeds, watering them and watching them grow. We loved looking at the beautiful flowers in the school grounds and drawing them with chalk.

In Maths, we have used a range of stamps and objects, as well as different sized potatoes to print shapes.

To support our learning, we have been using playdoh mats - these incorporate parts of the story of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and give a chance to create elements of the story using playdoh.

Squirrels class worked really hard to cut and stick the numbers in the correct order!

To develop our fine motor skills, we have been using scissors to cut around familiar shapes, as well as developing our pincer grip by picking up small pieces of paper to create a beautiful Rainbow Fish collage.

We love to complete jigsaws in Squirrels Class! This week, we created themed jigsaws using pictures taken from our class story 'Jasper's Beanstalk'.
