Autumn Curriculum Overview

Autumn 2 Week 1

The children came back from half term ready for some more fun in Reception. This week we have been learning all about Bonfire Night. They have heard the historical story of Guy Fawkes and King James 1. They know what gunpowder is and how it is used in fireworks today. They have created lots of Bonfire artwork, learning how to smudge chalk to create different artistic techniques and using different materials for collaging. Some children have been really interested in role-playing doctors so a Watchlytes Hospital has been set up in Beech Class. We have had some major illnesses to deal with including Miss C who was diagnosed with a broken heart!

Finally we made our very own edible sparklers and had a hot chocolate with marshmallows.

Our First Half Term
We have had a great first half term and the children have settled in to school brilliantly. They have spent time getting to know the routines and rules of Reception and had a great time investigating their new classroom. We have made bread for Harvest and use our favourite fruits and vegetables to make yummy smoothies. We looked at ourselves and our families. We even found out all about our very own super powers, Our senses. We explored our five senses through many activities. We made lavender play dough, played listening games and we even made popcorn for a special end of half term movie.
