Reception - Squirrels

Term One

 

We have had a great first term in Squirrels and have settled into school life really well! This term our topic was 'All About Me' and we have been learning lots about ourselves and our class members. We have learnt a letter a day in phonics and have been practicing our counting and number recognition in Maths.

Our first class trip was to the library where we learnt about how to borrow books and we all got the chance to look at different stories whilst we were there. 

We each got given a year six 'Buddy' to help us settle into school, learn the routines and comfort us if needed. We have had lots of lovely afternoons with our Buddies sharing stories, throwing and catching outside and going on treasure hunts!

This term also saw our outside area get a makeover and now we have lots of new exciting ways to learn outside!

We ended the term with a teddy bear's picnic in the sunshine!!

Term two 

 

We started this term learning about 'colours and patterns'. Last week was 'ELmer week' and we had a great time! We celebrated all being different and all being unique.

Throughout the week we talked about what makes each of us special, we learnt about repeating patterns, we had an Elmer parade and we made Elmer biscuits!!! The children really enjoyed learning with Elmer and every Elmer story we read had a great moral behind it.

Our next topic this term was Space. We have had lots of fun learning about the different planets and how rockets work. We even got visited by aliens who stole Miss Pittman's underpants!! We had our very own space station and rocket in our classroom too. We made Moon rock cakes, used aliens to help us with subtraction and did some space themed writing! 

Now it's time to get ready for our next topic.....CHRISTMAS!!!
