Reception Autumn 1

The Reception children have settled well into school life. They have been busy making new friends and exploring their new classrooms. Our Learning Challenge theme has been minibeasts. The children have loved finding out lots about different types of creepy crawlies. During our Learning Challenge sessions the children have been learning the scientific skill of observing. They created fantastic observational drawings of spiders, used magnifying glasses and hunted for minibeasts outside. The children have used what they had found out to build a woodlouse home to attract more minibeasts.

In Literacy we have been learning sounds, listening to initial sounds and writing letters. In Maths they have been learning more about numbers 1-5.

As well as their learning with an adult, the children have been busy accessing independent learning opportunities such as using different tools when painting, constructing giant minibeasts and spinning spider webs in the garden.
