October 21 - Harvest Festival Performance
This year for our Harvest Festival, we worked hard to learn the 'Dingle Dangle Scarecrow' song. This links to our work on Scarecrows and Harvest that we have done this half term. We had fun dancing and singing! We also worked very hard to learn the story of 'The enormous Turnip.' There are some tricky words in there and we did a great job of retelling the story using actions and words. We hope that you enjoy them!
For our topic all about Autumn, we went outside on an Autumn walk. We kept safe by making sure we were warm and dry in our coats and welly boots. We found lots of signs of Autumn - leaves falling off the trees and puddles to splash in. We found some food (berries and mushroom) and talked about how to keep safe if we see these out and about. We know not to eat them and that they are for the birds and wildlife. We found some ladybirds with different patterns on them, which we could talk about. We also enjoyed exploring which way the wind was blowing by throwing leaves up in the air and seeing which direction they went.
October 21 - Making a Scarecrow
For our Harvest Festival this year, we were set the task of making a Scarecrow. We looked at pictures of Scarecrows and talked about what they were made of. We used lots of different materials to make our Scarecrow and had to think of different ways that he could stand up!
