What a fantastic day we had at White Post Farm! Despite the freezing weather we all really enjoyed ourselves! Our farm guide Nigel was very informative and we have all learnt lots about about looking after animals it was great being able to feed them as well! We were lucky enough to be able to hold a selection of small animals and we were even able to experience feeling some reptiles! There was also time for a play on the Farm's indoor play area before heading back to the bus. 
We were all very excited to add our Pennies to Pudsey Bear to help raise money for Children In Need. Well done everyone!
We had a really great time creating animal art using outdoor materials. We had to get very creative with the different materials we found to show the different features on our animals. We also had a go at creating a den for a hibernating animal. We had to think about providing safe shelter that would keep the animal warm and dry.
We all really enjoyed learning about shapes and different ways to sort them. We also looked at repeating shape patterns and created our own!
Autumn 2
After talking about what makes us a super person we decided to put all of our ideas together and create our very own 'Super Kid'. We drew around ourselves and wrote down all the things that make us Super!
We explored our sense of Touch. We had to guess what we could feel inside a bag without looking. We had to record what we thought we could feel! After we had recorded everything we had a look inside the bag to see if we were right! 
We are really enjoying learning lots of new skills in PE.
Look at all our fantastic costumes on Roald Dahl Day!

We explored our sense of smell by guessing and recording what we thought we could smell in different pots. After we had guessed them all we revealed what was really inside and discovered if we were right or not. We then recorded the correct smell on our sheets!
We really enjoyed learning about different parts of the body. We all tried really hard to label the different parts.
Can you guess our secret identity? 
We all really enjoyed creating our own Superhero capes and masks!
Have a look at all our fantastic Summer Holiday Projects! We all did some really fun things and learnt lots of new words!
