Reception Learning Autumn 1

In Reception this half term we have been learning about Autumn. We have gone on Autumn walks and found different leaves, seeds and noticed the changing colours. The children explored the different scents and textures of herbs. In Maths we have used natural objects for counting and making number lines, and also for making pictures. The children have also made lots of repeating patterns using different resources.

We have started learning our speed sounds in phonics. We also learnt The Enormous Turnip rap and wondered what the mysterious object was that appeared in our flowerbed. We sang the Enormous Turnip rap to try to pull it out and at the end showed everyone our big muscles. The children also compared root vegetables and made a delicious soup from them.

The children are also learning how to use the art resources more independently, including writing their names on their pictures.
