Welcome to Carn Brea

 

In our class we learn through fun, play-based activities that are planned around our interests. We have lots of opportunities to choose our own activities and this is called, 'child-initiated learning'. We also learn by taking part in 'adult-led activities' with the adults in our class. 

 

Timetable information:

 

On Tuesdays, we take part in P.E lessons where we learn to move in different ways, follow instructions and use our own space and equipment safely and effectively.  We are also learning to use our new school library and will bring home a library book on this day. Please remember to send your child's previous library book in so that it can be changed, thank you. 

On Fridays, we bring in different fruits and vegetables for us all to taste during 'Fruity Friday'. We also bring in something special from home that we share and talk about during 'Show and Tell'.

 

Please keep an eye on our class page where we will regularly update photographs and information about what we have been learning in school!

Seasonal Topic
 
We have recently enjoyed learning about Spring. We began with a mysterious box full of Spring related objects, we then helped our teacher to plan our learning by talking, drawing and writing about our favourite objects from the 'Talking Tub'. 
 
We have been most interested in learning about life cycles, beginning with butterflies. We loved reading the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar alongside creating our very own life cycle diagrams using pasta! We have also been observing the wings of a butterfly which led us to learning about symmetry.
 
Most recently we have been learning about flowers and even planted our own in our outdoor area which we are responsible for looking after. As part of our child-initiated learning time we have been making flowers using mixed media and play dough, creating observational drawings and paintings of various different flowers and using broad beans to explore addition and subtraction.
