Our new Reception class have settled in brilliantly and have been having lots of fun exploring both the indoor and outdoor activities.
Our topic for this half term is ‘All About Me’. The children will be finding out about each other and learning that each and every one of us is amazing!
We will be thinking about how people change and grow during their life-time and the children will be thinking about what they would like to be when they are grown-ups! We will use the Mr. Men and Little Miss books by Roger Hargreaves to talk about different personalities and deciding which Mr. Men or Little Miss character we are each most like! 😉
In maths we will be focusing on numbers to 10; making sure we recognise each of the digits and can count accurately to ten. We will also be looking at pattern; finding patterns all around us and creating simple patterns of our own.
The children have all loved their forest fun sessions. They have come up with some wonderful forest animal names for their groups and next week they will be using all the natural resources they’ve collected to create an Autumn collage of their chosen animals.
