Autumn 2- Autumn and Winter!
Autumn 1- All About Me!
This half term we have shared things about ourselves and found out about our friends in Reception. We have shared our favourite books and foods, told each other about the special people in our families, discovered more about the area we live in and thought about what we would like to be when we grow up.
Here are some photos of us enjoying learning through provision so far.
Our Favourite Foods
We are enjoying the story, ‘Oliver’s Fruit Salad,’ and are thinking about our favourite foods, and if they are healthy or unhealthy choices. We each made a shopping list of healthy foods we would like in a fruit salad, and once Miss Kerry had bought them from the shop, we made our very own healthy fruit salads!
World Mental Health Day
For world mental health day this October we thought about how we might feel in different scenarios. We looked at different facial expressions and body languages that give us clues to how people feel. We acted out scenarios that might happen in our classroom, such as someone pushing in front of us in a queue, a friend letting us share a toy and finding that our picture was broken, and discussed how best to resolve these.
Our Maths topics this half term have focused on 1-1 correspondence, counting to ten, the wonderful world of one and repeating patterns. We have enjoyed learning through provision and expanding our knowledge of counting.
Black History Month
For Black History month we learnt about Usain Bolt and Jesse Owens; two famous athletes who inspired us! We painted pictures, made medals and held races to see who was the fastest. We celebrated their achievements as inspirational people of colour.
We are all Artists!
Our inspiration artist of this half term is Bridget Riley. We painted some stripes and spots, inspired by her colourful work. Take a look at our photos below.
