Its the end of Autumn 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Reception…………………….

WOW! what a fantastic start to FS2! The children have amazed us with how quickly they settled in to their new environments and learnt our rules and routines. We have been very busy with our learning this half term. We started off the Autumn term by getting to know one another, making friends and building relationships with one another. We kicked started our learning this term by covering our ‘All about me’ topic, where we got to know each other a little better by drawing who lives in our house, making ourselves out of play dough and painting self portraits. We moved onto our Autumn theme, where we used marble rolling to create Autumnal leaves, made hedgehogs from play dough and pasta and learnt all about the signs and changes in the natural environment during Autumn. We have most recently been learning all about Owls, with our focus book ‘Owl Babies’, the children have created story maps, made owl nests using sticks in the construction area and acted out the story using props. In Maths this half term we have covered, sorting, matching, mass, capacity, size, comparing amounts and pattern. We have used scales to weigh different objects, continued repeating patterns as well as creating our own and sorted sweets into groups which we got to enjoy afterwards! We have also enjoyed doing the word rap, concept cat and phonics, where we support the learning with action songs which the children join in with. The children have had so much fun and learnt so much! Next term we look forward to learning all about ‘People who help us’ and ‘Winter festivals’. We can’t wait for next half term for more exciting learning, enjoy your break FS2! Parents, you can keep up to date on all our fun learning by following the FS2 Twitter page @HHA_EYFS.

Its week 7 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Reception…………………….

This week in FS2 we have been learning all about owls. Our focus book in Literacy this week is ‘Owl Babies’. We have learned about all the different features of an owl, such as the wings, beak and talons. We have made owls using play dough in the malleable area and built nests for them using sticks. We have fed owls, worms using tweezers to develop our fine motor skills in the funky fingers area and ordered owls by size in the maths area. We have even acted out the story using a variety of props. Our Maths focus this week has been on size, mass and capacity. Next week we look forward to inviting you in class to see all this amazing learning happening. Please follow us on our Early years twitter page to keep up with all the fun we have in FS2.
