Autumn 2018


We have had a great few weeks exploring our Colour topic, last week we made our own Kandinsky circle prints which you can see in our classroom. We have read ‘The Dot’ and made our own art using the book as inspiration. This week we have learnt the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’ orally and included actions. We have also learnt about Harvest and its importance and completed some harvest activities. Next week we will be learning about autumn and continuing to learn about 2D shapes. Here are a few photos of our Kandinsky work.



Over the last couple of weeks we have been exploring colour. We have completed some colour mixing activities, decorated our own Elmer elephants using milk bottles and tissue paper and completed the skittle experiment. Last week we also went to the nature reserve and enjoyed spending the morning there. In maths we have been looking and numbers and how we can represent those numbers and in literacy we have read Elmer and sequenced the story. We are looking forward to our trip to see How to Hide a Lion this week and the coach ride too. 

Hello and welcome to the Reception class blog. We have been really busy in Reception over the last few weeks getting to know one another and the school. Everyone has settled really well in to school life, well done Reception! We had our first PE lesson and everyone did really well getting themselves changed in and out of their PE kits.  Next week we will be starting a new topic on colour. We will be completing lots of exciting activities related to colour. Next week in literacy we will be practising writing our name and in maths we will be counting and ordering numbers to 10.
