Welcome to Class 3!
In RE we have been learning about belonging. We learnt about what it means for Christians to belong to God’s family. We talked about baby Christenings and adult baptism as signs used to show others of belonging to God. We acted out a baby Christening using a doll.
We had a vicar, parents and Godparents, and named the baby! The baby was Christened using a shell and water, making the sign of a cross on the doll’s forehead.
In Forest School we made pumpkin soup, using our home grown pumpkins.
They were dug up from our allotment and then we peeled and chopped them into cubes.
Zosia, our Forest School Leader, lit a campfire and we added the pumpkin, chopped onion, stock and seasoning.
Whilst we were waiting for it to cook we listened to Zosia read the story of Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper.
When the soup was ready we tasted it with a slice of bread! Most of us liked the soup!
Patterns and Materials
This term our topic is Patterns and Materials. We have enjoyed playing in the role play area, dressing up in different clothes. We have been very imaginative in our games: playing postal delivery people, police locking up robbers, fairies and Shrek. We have a changing room and mirror so we can take a look at ourselves!
We had the Science Dome visit our school. This was so much fun. We crawled in to the dome and then learnt about different world environments and how nature adapts to its surroundings. The projector showed us stars and rainforests, icebergs and deserts. We were even shown dry ice which was so cool!
In Science we have been learning about the Human body and our five senses. We enjoyed our Science carousel, where we got to listen to a story, look through coloured lenses, smell various food items, taste crisps and feel all sorts of objects whilst wearing a blindfold.
We really enjoyed it. Trying to work out the flavours of the crisps was really hard!
