Autumn 1

Look out Reception/Year One … Here we come!


What a fabulous start to Reception/Year One!  It has been lovely to see the children lining up so beautifully outside the classroom ready to start the school day and it has really helped their independence, finding their peg, hanging up their own belongings and putting their water bottle on the table before starting our morning Movers and Groovers.  A favourite to start the day! 







The children have been really busy forming friendships and developing relationships with adults in the class.  It is lovely to see them all so confident and eager to share their exciting news!  They have also been exploring their new environment, enjoying the different areas and adapting to new rules and routines.


It’s been a busy half term and the children have enjoyed sharing our class book ‘Owl Babies’. It has been lovely to see them joining in with the text and reading along with the story.  It gave the children a chance to talk about their own families. The children have loved using the small world to act out their own stories and have explored different feathers at the ‘Awe and Wonder” station.




The children have been introduced to Jigsaw Jennie and Jerrie Cat who help us with our Personal, Social and Emotional Learning.  We have been learning about belonging and that we are similar and different to others and how to recognise and manage our feelings.


The children look forward to Forest School each week and have had lots of fun, developing new skills.




We have explored Autumn and used the objects the children collected to inspire our collaborative art work.  The children used their observation to draw different shapes and then tried hard to match the colours they could see.  Finally, we used pastels to embellish the shapes to add the fine detail. 



We ended the half term with International Day learning about Russia.  We learnt to say good morning and good afternoon in Russian and learnt how to Russian Polka dance.  We found Russia on the map and listened to the story of Babushka, meaning Russian Grandmother.  Kayley treated us all to home made blinis.  They were yummy!

We have really enjoyed getting to know the children this half term and look forward to seeing what the next half term will bring!
