It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
Some of us have enjoyed testing out the costumes for our nativity!
Children in Need
Everyone looked fantastic for ‘Children in Need’ day.
We really enjoyed drawing Pudsey Bear. It was a great way to get the children to practise their drawing skills and it really encouraged less confident artists to focus on using basic shapes to create a familiar form.
We enjoyed an assembly with the Fire Service all about fire safety & staying safe around Bonfire Night. We found out how to STOP, DROP & ROLL before having a go at spraying the hose.
Working hard in Phonics to read and spell words with the ‘ue’ digraph saying /yoo/
Halloween Workshop with Adam Bushnell
A spooky workshop with author & illustrator Adam Bushnell.
We’re so proud of all the lovely children in Team Dahl after their wonderful Harvest Festival.
They worked really hard to learn their poems and songs.
Lots of fun using & handling a range of tools to carve pumpkins & make our own magic wands in Forest School. We enjoyed warming up with a hot chocolate at the end of our busy day.
Phonics – Sound Bingo
We had lots of fun playing Sounds Bingo.
Our New Reading Area
Team Dahl have enjoyed spending time in our new Reading area.
We love reading!
Maths & English
We are always hard working superstars in english and maths.
We really enjoy our Guided Reading sessions.
We looked at different texts, they included poetry, play scripts, information text and stories in a familiar setting.
We were great at answering questions and reading independently.
Science in the Forest School Garden
In science we have been looking at the properties of a variety of everyday materials by testing different objects.
By looking at what the objects were made from we tested whether materials were bendy of not bendy, waterproof and transparent or opaque and waterproof and absorbent. We recorded our findings.
In the Forest School circle we talked about why different materials would be suitable for some uses and unsuitable for others.
We also enjoyed making some towers (cairns) using natural materials found in the garden.
Health & Wellbeing
A super session with the Worry Wizard thinking about all of the things we can do to help our wellbeing.

Come to the Dough Disco
We had a great time going to the ‘Dough Disco’ to warm up our fingers and hands doing some fine muscle exercises. We were amazing at doing all the different actions.
