The children in the Junior Room were learning lots of new things during November and December. We were busy in play learning about houses and homes and Santa’s Workshop.
In SESE we were excited to welcome Heritage Expert Frankie to our school. We had great fun examining old artifacts and learning about life long ago.
We also explored the topic of homes and sequenced the story of The Three Little Pigs.
We discussed our journey to school and recorded three places we each pass on our journeys to school each day.
As we are now in the season of Winter we learned lots of things which happen at this time of year, learning how the trees are bare, days are shorter and the weather colder. We wrote sentences and drew pictures of this time of year.
We also learned about what happens water in Winter, freezing to ice when cold. We carried out an experiment to see where ice melted fastest in our classroom.
Finally in SESE we learned all about penguins including the names of different kinds of penguins, where they live and what they eat.
In RE we learned about the season of Advent, we created our own Advent Wreath lighting a new candle each week in the countdown to Christmas. We also learned all about the story of the birth of Jesus.
Finally in Art we made houses using fabrics as well as lots of colourful art for Christmas including Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Christmas Baubles and Winter Robins.
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
