IDL: Harvest Time

The Beech class enjoyed celebrating Harvest by gathering foods to donate to the foodbank and completing lots of fun activities around the class.  We learned what harvest means along with some useful Malaton signs for this time of year.  We also looked at the food that is harvested at this time of year, how we sort or label our foods and then we thought about where different foods come from.  We were successful learners during when completing the different activities at each station.

 

We also created some lovely Autumn themed crafts!   These are our favourite masterpieces.

Harvest in the Pine Class

This week in the Pine Class we have been participating in some activities all about Harvest.

We made bread dough, which was great, a lovely sensory experience, great hand exercise – squashing, gripping and rolling!!

We have continued in literacy to work on our letters, this week ‘C’, looking for things around the classroom that start with the letter and making a Cookie Monster using lots of different shapes.

We have started working our SQA Communication Unit – Recognising Characters in Fiction, we have chosen the story ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear,  What do you see?’ to start with. We get to pick our favourite animal, work on our colours sorting, practice our Makaton signs for all the colours and the different animals, and we will make some very creative Art work.  Below is a link to a song that we liked.

Brown Bear Rap

We have also started our Numbers Skills SQA Unit, we have been counting whole numbers, we used the large building bricks

Counting while doing our MOVE Exercises, multi-tasking!!

We used the blocks to build up a tower as tall as we are – how many bricks??? Again, knocking them down is always the best bit!!!!

Fantastic Artwork with Mrs Mac

In Literacy we have been working on the letter sounds of our name and story sequences.

Working on our display for our theme board.

Friday was Purple Day – to raise donations for the Ayrshire Hospice, we came dressed in Purple did some purple Art and read a Purple Story.

The World needs more Purple People

Harvest

This week we have been learning about Harvest. We were confident individuals and joined the whole school assembly on Wednesday virtually.

We made ourselves into scarecrows by colouring in a picture and adding our picture to the face.

We were also confident individuals playing a game of pin the carrot on the scarecrow. Some were able to tolerate the mask covering their eyes it was great fun.

Harvest – Corn on the Cob Crafts

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS *

The Daisies class have enjoyed some Harvest themed activities. We loved making a dingle dangle scarecrow using a range of 2D shapes. We also used cheerios to make a corn on the cob craft.

We used the cheerios and blitzed them to make a cheerio sand sensory tray. We loved exploring this! Some of this also enjoyed tasting the cheerios.

Harvest – Sensory Trays

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS *

The Daisies class enjoyed exploring some Harvest themed sensory trays today. We had a dry tray with lentils, frozen peas, pasta and green beans which had harvest themed pictures hidden underneath. We also had a wet tray filled with jelly and baked beans. We used this to explore a moving tractor and practise some tipping and dumping.
