Welcome to Reception/Year 1
Please click on the link to see our EYFS Overview which details what we will be learning throughout the year.
Autumn term 1
We start the year by finding out about ourselves. We bring in special boxes which we have filled with things that are important to us or that we have collected during the school holidays. We find out about different interests by talking about these boxes with our friends. We then all help to decide what we want to turn our role play area into, based on interests that come from the class.
We then have great fun using the role play area to support learning across the whole curriculum. We use lots of maths, for example using money to pay for things, recognising numerals and keeping scores. We also have fun developing our reading and writing skills in this area through related reading and writing opportunities.
We go on to explore other individuals’ interests through sharing books and stories in class and also through using our library. The children get to choose a library book each week to take home to share with their families.
We have daily access to our outdoor area which we use to develop all curriculum areas. We also go on autumn walks around the school grounds. We explore colour in our investigation area and do lots of talking, measuring, cooking and investigating with things that we find at this time of year, such as pumpkins and conkers.
