Autumn Term 2020
Welcome to Dove Class.
Dove Class Reflective Space
Dove Class Work
We welcomed the children back to school after a long lockdown and time away. The children settled back in quickly and enjoyed exploring inside and outside the Early Years environment.
The children have been learning about letter sounds and numbers 0-5.
We were lucky to have a lovely social distanced visit from Farmer James who told us all about his job at harvest time. The children behaved beautifully and asked a lot of questions.
Autumn 1 Displays
We have been exploring Autumn this half term and found out about different celebrations, such as Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas.
We went on an Autumn walk to collect and look for signs of Autumn, the children were very well behaved and we had a lovely time.
Although we have not done a Nativity performance this year, the children have enjoyed learning the Christmas Story and dressing up in costumes.
The children have learnt about how Christmas is celebrated around the world and covered the classroom in lots of 'glitter' making Christmas cards and decorations. We are looking forward to celebrating the end of term with a Christmas party.
Autumn 2 Displays
Not the start to the new year that we expected or wanted but we are so proud of the children who are learning from home and those children who are in school. Parents are working really hard to support their children's learning and experiences. This is evident in the FANTASTIC work, pictures and videos we are seeing.
We have been learning about the season of Winter and the different types of weather that come with it. We have learnt about colder climates and the children have learnt lots of new facts about polar animals.
Exploring our environment for signs of winter, making winter art and winter counting
Writing and making winter spells and making polar animals
Spring 1 Display
We have been learning about 'Weather' the last few weeks- rain, wind and sun. The children have learnt about why it rains, explored different activities you can do in the wind and learnt that the sun is a star and made posters about how to stay safe in the sun.
In maths we have built a deeper understanding of numbers 0-10 and counted objects into 10 frames and used them to make number bonds.
We are looking forward to celebrating 'World Book Day' on Thursday 4th March, by taking part in different reading activities and exploring what 'characters' are and retelling stories.
We are very excited to have ALL the children back next week and getting back to normal after 'lockdown'

We have been outside a lot of looking for signs of Spring, learning about life cycles of chicks and frogs, writing some fantastic Spring Poems and creating some interesting 'Spring Flower' Art.
We have been learning about the Easter Story and worked together to make and 'Easter Garden' We designed some fantastic Easter Egg Hunt trails.
