The work of contemporary artist Beatriz Milhazes was the inspiration for our lesson on abstract art. We looked at her use of colour and shape - particularly circles - then created our own compositions in a similar style.

We have been learning about Autumn in class so when we visited the forest this afternoon, we looked for signs of the changing seasons. We listened to a lovely story called 'Leaf Man' by Lois Ehlert then went off to find leaves that we could use to make our own leaf figures. We couldn't leave the forest without having a little bit of time to play!
We have been exploring our senses. We used our ears to try to work out who was playing the bells behind their back; we used our hands to identify objects in a feely bag; we used our sense of smell to try to identify different spices; and we used our taste buds when sampling drinks that were sweet, sour, salty and bitter.

In PE, after a good warm-up, we worked with the children in Mrs Johnson's class to practise balancing on different body parts, linking this work to our science topic 'Our Bodies'.
What a lot of maths we have been doing since we started back to school! We have been matching numerals to ten frames, matching numerals and ten frames to words, writing numbers, playing maths games on boards and i-pads, and counting objects carefully.
