Infants' School

Autumn 1

It has been a different start to the year for the children, but they have settled really well to the new routines and rules of Reception. We are really proud of how they have been able to leave their grown-ups in the morning at the gate and this has really helped develop their independence. The children have been busy making new friends and exploring their new environment, enjoying the different activities on offer.

 

It’s been a busy half term with the children talking about themselves and their families. We have looked at the things that make us special and unique, and some of the similarities we share. The children enjoyed looking closely at themselves in a mirror, made their own paper plate faces and created their own ‘mini-me’.

 

 

  

 

The children have enjoyed listening to our class book, ‘Owl Babies’, and drew their own owl family in their Literacy Books. They have enjoyed retelling the story using puppets and masks in our role play and small world area, and have loved exploring feathers at our ‘Awe and Wonder’ station.  In our Malleable area, they made bird nests, carefully rolling the dough to make an egg shape, and they threaded cereal onto pipe cleaners to hang on the tree for the birds to eat.

 

         

 

 
 

We learnt about the Harvest and explored different fruit and vegetables. We talked about their texture and colours. We then had a go at drawing them and painting them, mixing the colours we needed. Finally, we used pastels to embellish them. Don’t they look good?!

     

 
 

In our Continuous Provision, we had the opportunity to explore Autumn objects with magnifying glasses. We looked at the texture and colour and told out friend what they felt like.

We also explored a pumpkin, taking out the seeds with tweezers and feeling the inside. Some of us even tried to plant the seeds!

 

        

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