Autumn 2


This week the children have enjoyed learning about Diwali and Bonfire night.

I have been wowed by the children’s fabulous Bhangra dancing, mehndi designs and rangoli patterns.

The week ended with a bang after the children created fantastic firework artwork!

Super work reception 🎇🎆🎇

Autumn 1

The children have made an absolutely fabulous start to reception life. They have enjoyed exploring their new environment and making friends.

This term in Talk for Writing (T4W) the children have leant traditional tales; “Goldilocks”, “Little Red Riding Hood” and “The Three Little Pigs”. I have been so impressed with how quickly the children learnt the text maps and how enthusiastically they joined in with the stories when recounting the story as a whole class. The children delved deeper into the tales by learning about characters and settings, in addition to, answering “I wonder..” comprehension questions.

The children have wow’ed me with their efforts in phonics. They particularly enjoyed trying to solve the mystery of who left sounds and messages in the wild area of the playground; was it the Three Little Pigs or the Big Bad Wolf?

In maths, the children have explored sorting, comparing and patterns with a particular focus on using mathematical language and developing their explanations.

Wow! What a fabulous term of learning! 😊
