Autumn Term 1 in Reception

The children in Reception have had a very busy first term in school.

They have been getting to know each other and making special friendships. The children have listened to old and new stories which they have drawn using the ‘Tales Toolkit’ approach: character, setting, problem and solution. The children have been developing their pencil control leading many of them writing letters in their name and sounds that they have learnt in phonics. Numbers and shape have been everywhere enabling them to count, record and build with. The children have been very interested in the season Autumn. They have been collecting leaves and autumn seeds in the playground. The children were introduced to the artist Andy Goldsworthy which supported their learning in creating art using the autumnal objects.
