The Farm (Autumn 2)
This week our theme within our farm topic has been ‘goats’. We have ordered numbers on goats and created simple number sentences where we fed the goats a certain amount of apples and carrots. We completed goat dot to dots and created playdough creatures for the farm. We tried really hard to write simple CVC words and apply our phonemes in our writing.
We joined in with a live stream of Mr Dalton leading an active 10. This was fun because we don’t usually get to see the other bubbles of children and teachers in school. We also watched the live stream of our celebration assembly on Facebook. It made us feel part of the whole school community. Finally, this afternoon, we decorated an ‘autumn pumpkin football’ and then went on a pumpkin spotting walk to see the pumpkins the other classes had decorated.
We have enjoyed working together this half term but we are all tired and ready for a week off now. Happy half term everyone!
Here is a sample of some of the learning we have been doing In our topic this week. We have ordered numbers on cows up to 50; counted the correct amount of beads to match the number on the cow; created cow sheds, cow enclosures and cow prints; written rhyming strings to go with the farm ‘cat’; and discussed which products are from which animals.
We have been really enjoying our new farm topic. Last week we looked at pigs and this week hens. We have been finding out some interesting facts about these animals and creating rhyming strings from ‘pig’ and ‘hen’. We have also been collaging hens and pigs for our displays.
Next week we will be finding out all about cows and the journey of milk from the field to our table.
