Autumn 2 - Once Upon a Time
This term Year R have been busy learning about different traditional tales. We have listened to and role-played lots of different stories, learning how to use story language in our play and when telling stories.
Year R have also done lots of cooking this term: we have made pumpkin soup, porridge and our own bread! We have used cooking as an opportunity to learn about recipes and instructions as well as observing changing states as part of our science learning.
We have been on a few trips out of school this term. We visited the town library to find out about how we can borrow and find different types of books and also went to War Memorial Park to visit the memorial and see the poppies as well as doing some mindfulness activities in the peace garden.
Year R put on their Nativity play in December as well as visiting the church for the first time for the school Christmas service!
Autumn 1: All About Me!
We had a great first term in school, learning our new routines and making lots of new friends! We talked about ourselves and what makes us special and have learned to listen to other people's ideas as well. We finished our term by learning about the book 'The Dot' by Peter H. Reynolds. Through this story we learned that it important to keep practising and never give up! It also gave us the opportunity to develop our art and mark making skills through lots of dotty art.
