Today we painted our pumpkin tea light holders for Halloween. We had to make orange. We made it using yellow and red. We will take them home for Halloween.
Class 1 have been busy again. Today we discussed Harvest Time and what it means. We looked at various crops that farmers harvest. We also talked about those that are not as lucky as we are. We have also donated food to our local food bank. We are celebrating Harvest on Friday in our church. After the Harvest Festival we will have a Harvest Cafe in our school hall. We have made Rice Krispie Cakes for the Harvest Cafe. Once all the cake holders were filled we were allowed to have some of the mixture. Yum!
Class 1 had some messy fun today. We were busy helping scoop out the pumpkins. We described the insides and what they felt like. There were lots of seeds which we kept to grow some of our own pumpkins next year. It was very slimey, gooey and messy but it was fun.
Nature Walk - 17th October 2018
Today Class 1 went on a nature walk. We have been learning about our 5 senses. We had to listen carefully to the sounds we heard outside and decide were they loud or soft sounds. We had to look around us and notice things that we saw. we touched lots of items and described their texture. We also had to notice the smells in our outdoor school area. Finally we picked a tree of our choice and did a bark rubbing.
Class 1 planted some daffodil bulbs today. We had some very special helpers in our class today to help us with this task. First we had to put some soil in. Next we put the bulb in and had to make sure we put it the right way. After that we covered it with soil. Finally we watered it and hung it in it's special pot on our outdoor fence.
We will have to care for them until they begin to grow next Spring.
