Autumn 2: Let's Celebrate

 

Making Jam Sandwiches

As part of our ICT, we have been looking at following instructions. We started off by sequencing a range of photographs. We then talked about how to make a jam sandwich and we all drew our own flowchart. Next, we used our flowcharts to make our own jam sandwich. They were very yummy! We took photographs of each stage and we then used the Puppet Edu app to narrate each picture and make our own set of instructions.

 

Tales Toolkit

In Reception we have been creating our own stories using 'Tales Toolkit'. On the carpet, we created a story together about our character 'Mick the Mouse'. We then chose the setting to be an ice-rink. The problem in our story was that a man came along and stole Mick's cheese whilst he was skating. Our story ended with the solution of a magic spoon bopping the man on his head so he slept for 100 years. The children then used the Tales Toolkit equipment to create their own stories. There were lots of creative ideas including volcanoes and treasure islands! We can't wait to see what other stories we create in the next few weeks! 

 

Autumn 1: Me and My World

In Autumn 1, we will be looking at our bodies, families, past and present events and our local environment. Please look at the Topic Overview and Medium Term Plans to see what we will be covering in more detail.

Me and My World

 

Our World

For Music this half-term, we have been learning different Nursery Rhymes and playing along to them on the glockenspiel. 

 

Senses

As part of our topic 'Me and My World', we have been learning all about our senses. We've used our sense of touch to feel and describe describe materials. We used our sense of smell and taste to guess different foods. We tried bitter, salty, sweet and sour foods. Some of us were even brave enough to do it blindfolded!

 

RM's Forest School

This half-term, RM have been taking part in Forest school. We have been doing lots of fun things with Mrs Hattersley. We've made dens, created stories, gone on hunts, made clay faces and much more!

       

 

Reception Class visit to Church

On Monday our reception children visited church.

We met with Father Jeremiah, who showed us some key features of the church, including the font, altar and tabernacle.

Father Jeremiah spent time talking to the children and answering their questions.

It was a lovely introduction for the children, who will be attending their first whole school mass next week to celebrate Harvest.
