October was a busy month in Junior 6. We did some spooky art including black cats, orange pumpkins and shaving foam ghosts. We went outside to find animal habitats and found spiders in webs, a bird in a nest, woodlice under rocks, worms in the soil and ants under rotten wood. We carved out a pumpkin and dressed up for Trick or Treating and our Halloween Party. We enjoyed making Witch's Stew in the Witch's kitchen and practiced our counting skills by finding scary objects in the sand and counting how many we could find. We read Room on the Broom and dressed up as the witch in the story.
We have 8 students in Junior 6 this year. Six students are familiar faces while two are new to our school. We are delighted to have them with us.
We've had a busy few weeks getting to know each other. This month our theme was 'ME'! We made our family tree, looked at our unique finger prints and looked at the size of our foot prints. We talked about our birthdays and decorated a cake and placed the correct amount of candles on each. We had great fun making our family members with play dough. We played with Mr Potato Heads and copied pictures of already made up Potato heads. We played with dolls houses, family member dolls and furniture. We enjoyed placing the correct furniture in the rooms. We used sponges to print body shapes. We enjoyed singing our daily song about putting musical shakers on different parts of our body.
We're looking forward to a busy and successful year in Junior 6.
Here is just a sample of what we got up to.........
