Home Learning Activities for Autumn 1

W/C 06.09.21 - This week we have started our phonics lessons following Read, Write, Inc. The children were very excited to meet Fred the Frog and join in with our new sounds.

W/C 06.09.21 - We have started the week by exploring and learning in a variety of different areas. We have been learning about our core values and have been showing them in all our learning - we are so proud of how the children have settled in and all the AMAZING learning they are doing.

08/09/21 - Just Like Me! Today we have been exploring the shaving foam to find items that are all the same colour. We have identified and sorted the objects to match the colour of each compare bear.

09/09/21 - This week has been very busy for our Reception children especially for those who are not used to being at school for full days. This morning, we started the day with some deep breathing and quiet, calm music followed by some peer massage which allowed us to start the day feeling calm and relaxed.

10/09/21 - Our First PE Lesson - Some of our children felt a little nervous and worried about PE this morning but we soon found out that there was nothing to worry about! We played a game to warm up and then we learned how to use our playground games. Finally, we stretched all our muscles at the end.

15/09/21 - This week we have been super sorters! We have been learning how to sort items according to size, colour and type. We have also been learning how to follow a sorting rule and identify a sorting rule. The children used the coloured cogs to sort them by colour into different baskets.

21/09/21 - Today we have been learning how to write our name. We have tried hard to remember how we sit to write successfully - on our bottom with our feet on the floor! We have also been learning how to hold a pen correctly.

21/09/21 - We have been having lots of fun during free flow today. We have been enjoying making play dough fires, squirting the water outside, making bracelets in the creative area and pretending to be the teacher.
