The Gigantic Turnip

This half term we have been exploring all the opportunities for learning in our new classroom. We have also been reading two key stories; The Gigantic Turnip and Oliver's Vegetables. We have used these to base some of our work on.  We have re-enacted and retold the story of the Gigantic Turnip in lots of different ways.Then we wrote a speech bubble as one of the characters from the Gigantic Turnip to describe what we did. 

After we had finished reading the Gigantic Turnip, we received a delivery of vegetables to the classroom. We read the story of Oliver's Vegetables . We predicted whether Oliver would eat the vegetables he found in his granddad's garden.

What makes Newtown Infants School Blossom and Bloom? 

In Geography we have been learning about Human and Physical features and what makes Newtown Soberton so special. 

Bon Bon our class rabbit went on an adventure around our school. The children had to guess Where he was from the picture and decide whether Bon Bon was in a Human or Physical part of the school. We has so much fun exploring where he had been! 

We have also discussed where we live, compared to other places nearby. Such as Warsash, Portsmouth and Southampton. We loved exploring them together on Google Maps. 

Lets get counting!!

In maths we have been sorting objects into different categories and exploring place value. We ordered numbers from 20 and solved the missing number challenges on the tables! this helped us investigate numbers that are more or fewer than a given number.  

If we go down to the woods today....... what will we find? 

For outdoor learning we went over to Hundred Acre Wood. We had the best time building dens and foraging for sticks and leaves. We searched for the signs of Autumn and discussed the changes of the seasons.  

We didn't let the rain get in the way of a fantastic trip to the woods!
