Navaho October

 Navaho Class have settled in well to their first half term at school and really enjoyed our fist topic - ‘Marvellous Me’. We have thought about ourselves as individuals and appreciated all our special family traditions. We have compared our home environment in Cornwall, to Africa and the Arctic. When learning about Africa we learnt the story of 'Handa’s Surprise', tasted some tropical fruits and thought about hot weather. We used various materials to make ‘mud houses’. During our theme of homes in the cold we conducted an ice experiment and learnt that ice melts faster when it is sprinkled in salt! We can now make comparisons between Cornwall and places that have different climates.

We have learnt the stories of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ to help us learn about Autumn. We were so surprised to have a visit from Little Red Riding Hood and we had lots of questions to ask her! During our Daily Mile we have observed the leaves falling off of the trees.

In mathematics we have been learning to order numbers and count carefully. We have learnt to identify 2D shapes and to talk about their properties. In Literacy we have been learning to read and write individual sounds and are beginning to read short words. In PE we have been learning to negotiate space well and to throw and catch a large ball. We are very excited for our next topic of ‘To Infinity and Beyond!’
