During Autumn term, the children have been exploring their new classroom environment, making and building relationships with their peers and adults.

In phonics, we have been learning our single letter sounds and have been practising our oral blending with help from 'Fred Frog'.

In literacy, we have covered the following books in Autumn 1; Colour Monster and Giraffe's Can't Dance. In Autumn 2; The Gingerbread Man, Little Red Hen and The Jolly Postman at Christmas.

In maths in Autumn we have been; exploring number 1 to 5, subtilising to 5, exploring 2d shapes and their properties and pattern.

Throughout this topic we have also celebrated halloween, bonfire night, Diwali and Christmas. We have made fire work pictures, carved pumpkins, created lanterns, made decorations, etc. We also visited Rand Farm for their Christmas experience where we decorated gingerbread men, met Santa and visited his workshop.
