During Autumn 1, REY have enjoyed learning about the Autumn season. We had a walk to the woods to look at the changes in our natural environment. We collected different coloured leaves, sticks and conkers.
For our home learning, the children created some wonderful Autumn collages, using the natural materials they picked from the woods.
For art and creativity, the children enjoyed making their own hedgehogs, using clay for the body and little sticks for the spikes. Once dried, they painted their hedgehogs. It was an exciting surprise when a real hedgehog was discovered sleeping in our construction area.
As part of our maths learning to say some counting words, the children made their own birds feeders. They counted out cheerios as they threaded them onto wire.
For our literacy learning, the children have enjoyed looking at books in our reading area. They particularly enjoyed Goldilocks And The Three Bears where they followed the story up by independently playing in our immersive role play area to act out what the characters did.
We have also introduced our lending library this term, so the children can enjoy sharing books at home.
Keeping with the children's interest of Goldilocks, the children did porridge tasting. We mixed the ingredients together and used the language of hot and cold. Most of the children ate it all up!
