Fistral Autumn 17/18

In Fistral Class we like to use lots of practical equipment to help us to gain a better understanding of number and calculation. Below are some photographs of just some of the resources that we like to use. 
We used natural materials to create a super troll. We then described him. 
We have been using our lovely outdoor area to bring our learning about animals and their habitats to life. 
We read the story of 'The Magic Paintbrush' in which a young boy paints things that will help others out with a magic brush. We discussed what we would paint to help others if we had a magic paintbrush. Below are the paintings of the children's ideas. What would you paint?
We created settings for The Three Billy Goats Gruff in our outdoor area. Each setting needed to have a tranquil stream, a rickety bridge and some lush green grass. 
As part of our learning about the UK. We made English scones. We made fruits ones, plain ones and cheese ones. They were yummy!
We learnt to recite the poem 'Do your ears hang low?'. We had great fun making up our own actions. 
Welcome back! We have kicked off our new literacy unit 'Instructions' with some written instruction following to make jam sandwiches and pumpkin pictures.
