Our Learning in Reception – Autumn 2

Week One

Goldilocks and The Three Bears

This week we have learnt all about the traditional Fairytale ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’. We created our own story maps to re-tell the story and use the new vocabulary learnt. In Maths, we learnt about positional language which included hiding Daddy bear and explaining where he was. We also carried out an obstacle course in our outdoor play. Towards the end of the week, we made our own porridge and voted for which topping we would like. We finished the week by learning about Bonfire & Firework safety and linked in some science by melting chocolate and making some chocolate sparklers.

Week Two

Little Red Riding Hood

This week we have learnt all about ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We created baskets and shopping lists and then planned routes to Grandma’s house. We started to look at the numbers 4 and 5 in Maths and looked at who out of our friends were 4 and who is now 5. In PSHE, we discussed what makes us special and learnt a song  by Harold the giraffe, we then used mirrors to talk about what’s special about us.


Week Three

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

This week our focus text was ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. We have enjoyed planning and building bridges for the goats to cross, and then testing them out to see if they hold weight. We have been looking at different ways of making 4 and 5 and experimented with cubes to see all the ways they would fit together. We hosted a ‘Come On In Event’ where our grown ups were invited into class and see all of the learning that we have been doing.
