Autumn 2
Why do squirrels hide their nuts?
Chestnut class have enjoyed starting their new theme 'Why do squirrels hide their nuts?' and looking at all things Autumn. We began by going on an Autumn walk after being told about some strange things happening to the environment outside. We noticed things like "The leaves are on the ground. They have fell off the trees." "The leaves are yellow, red and orange." "They aren't green anymore". We also had to wear our wellington boots and coats as the weather has changed and it is now getting cold and wet.  We have then been starting to explore seasonal changes within our classroom environment. We have explored pumpkins, describing their appearance, smell and weight using our senses.  We can't wait to see what other learning we complete this half term. 
Autumn 1
 We all belong here!
We have enjoyed settling into school, learning about the school rule and routines. We have also explored people who help us both inside school and outside of school. We then moved on to learn about our key text 'Have you filled a bucket today?'
