Look What We Did!
Children in Need 2017
We had lots of fun raising money for Children in Need! It was very exciting when Graham Liver and Gilly came to visit us – they brought Pudsey Bear! We enjoyed bouncing on the bouncy castle and coming to school dressed in our sportswear.
We are very pleased with all the money we raised and learnt about the good causes and children it will go to.
Reception Class have been learning all about the festival of Diwali this week. In our Literacy work we have learnt the story of Rama and Sita and used puppets, masks and costumes to retell it.
We tried some traditional homemade Indian sweets, they were delicous! We looked at mendhi and rangoli patterns and tried to make our own – we had to concentrate very hard.
It was very interesting to find out how some of our friends in Reception Class celebrated Diwali with their families at the weekend, we enjoyed looking at photographs they brought in to show us!
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.

Autumn Term 1
We have been so busy since we started school in September! We have learnt about our bodies and our senses as well as finding out about Harvest and Diwali. We have enjoyed learning to retell the story of the Gingerbread Man and we have been using phonics to write letters and words. In maths we have been counting, recognising numbers, finding one more and less, and matching numbers to quantaties.
