Autumn Term 1st Half
The topic for this half term for the children in Reception is ‘Marvellous Me’. We will be getting to know each other, talking about our families, pets and friends, looking at different body parts, singing songs, including Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes and learning about the senses. We will be thinking about ways to stay safe and ways to keep healthy.
In our Number work we will be singing number songs, learning to recognise 2D shapes and numbers and finding out what is one more or one less than a given number.
In our Literacy work we will be doing lots of speaking and listening activities and rhyming work initially.

Look What We Did!
In our topic work this week we have been learning about our senses. We tasted lots of different food, like bitter lemons, sweet strawberries and salty crisps, to help us learn about how we use our tongue to taste. When we learnt about our sense of smell we played ‘Guess the Smell’ with things like coffee and perfume! We played a range of games to teach us more about our sense of sight, touch and our hearing.
The Gingerbread Man
We have been reading the story of The Gingbread Man and learnt how to retell it using actions. We also drew storymaps to record and retell the story. We had lots of fun using props to act it out. In our mathematics we used gingerbread men to learn all about more and less.
This week we learnt about our bodies. We talked about the different parts and sang ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes’. We also learnt about the skeleton and all the different bones in our bodies. Did you know that a fully grown adult has 206 bones in their body?
We have been learning all about the festival of Harvest. We found out about where fruits and vegetables come from and how they grow. We learnt about other people who are less fortunate and talked about what we could do to help them, like bringing in tins of food to send to the food bank.
We enjoyed looking at and tasting lots of different fruits and vegetables when we learnt about how God created the world and provides us with food to eat.
