Turtles Learning Blog

Turtles have been focusing on 'All About Me' in topic. We have thought about what makes us the same as others and what makes us different. We have painted pictures of ourselves to put on the wall in the classroom in Art and designed our own elephants for Elmer day. In Geography, we have been looking at how the weather changes and how these changes affect us. In Science we have been looking at the seasons, focusing on Autumn. 


In English we have been reading a story called 'The Colour Monster' by Anna LLenas. The children have designed their own colour monster, wrote about different feelings and what makes them feel that way and they even wrote a poem about themselves. We are now looking at the story 'Elmer' by David McKee. We have used adjectives to describe Elmer and we have thought about what Elmer is thinking before he turns himself grey. 


In Maths, we have been learning lots of different things. Some of us have been counting with the cubes, Numicon and counters, and some of us have been learning our number bonds to 10 and how to add, and some of us have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. 


We have been doing Cosmic Kids Yoga once a week and we really enjoy this. We also use GoNoodle every morning to get our bodies warmed up for the day. 


In fine motor, we have been using the pegs, jigsaws and nuts and bolts. We have also been working hard with our handwriting. 


In PE, we are focusing on running, jumping and throwing. We used the parachute to run under and run around, we really enjoyed this. 


We have been having lots of fun in Speech and Language. We have been thinking of different things in different categories, counting syllables in words and playing a game called 'Chomping Shark'.
