Autumn Term Week Seven

One World Week. The children started the week by looking at a map of the world and finding out where different children in the class and their families come from and if they have any connections to other countries. They also played with toys that children in different countries may have.
Fun in the rain, colour mixing in puddles.
Pumpkin fun, making pumpkin soup and hammering holes into pumpkins.
Sawing small pumpkins and then floating them in the water tray. The children realised that they had to put them in the water gently so they could float like boats.
More fun with pumpkin soup.
They children used the sewing machine to make their own autumn blanket. They used autumnal colours, using the autumn blanket story to help them decide on the right colours.
