EYFS – Ibn Umar

It has been a very busy term in Ibn Umar. All of us have worked really hard and enjoyed taking part in a variety of activities.

In literacy we looked at the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears ‘. We acted out the story with our friends and added actions to it. We then used our imagination to innovate the story. We created our own character and re wrote the story.

We also learnt about a very special celebration, celebrated by Christians. We looked at how the Christmas story is different in Islam and Christianity.  We got an opportunity to look at a range of Christmas artefacts and learn about their significance.

In numeracy we have been learning to combine two groups of objects by adding. We have also learnt about length, weight, capacity and looked at the value of different coins.

We have had a fabulous time in the afternoons. We have been learning all about Autumn.  We learnt about harvest and why farmers use scarecrows.  We then made scarecrow biscuits, following a set of instructions. We were fantastic at decorating our own biscuits and they tasted really great too!

In Expressive Arts and Design, with design and created a chair for baby bear with Miss Rifai’s help.

We all had a discussion to understand why we use chairs and how important they are. We decided what our chair should look like by creating our own designs. We discussed what material our chair should be made out of and we decided to use wood. Just like real carpenters we got to use nails and a hammer to put all the pieces together. We talked about how we need to keep safe when using grown up tools and we worked really hard to create our perfect chair for baby bear.
