"It's not a box!"

Today we started our 'It's not a box!' project based on the book by Antoinette Portis. The children have been busy, working together to turn their cardboard boxes into a wide range of imaginative things- from a fairy house to a skeleton body, to a television, or even a toilet! They have even managed to make their boxes talk! Watch their videos...

Autumn leaves...

Exploring the Autumn leaves- sorting them by colour and size, seeing how many we could catch at once,finding and describing our favourite leaf... Then taking some back to the classroom for painting, printing and crafting!

Team Work...construction!

At the start of half term it was Mrs Larcombe's birthday. To celebrate Penguins class designed and built her her very own aeroplane, just like the one from her favourite children's programme, 'Come Outside!' We looked carefully at photographs of the aeroplane, listed its main features and then worked as a team to build it. Everyone contributed- great teamwork! (And Mrs Larcombe thoroughly enjoyed being 'Auntie Mabel' for the morning...!)
