Autumn 1 2017

 

Our topic this half term is 'Ourselves'.  We are going to be finding out all about Ourselves, including drawing pictures of ourselves, painting self-portraits and making faces using loose parts and playdough.  The children are going to be learning that we have similarities and differences and that we don't all like the same things. We will learn about birthdays (as they are very important when you are 4 or 5) and all about the different families we have.

The homework project this half term is to create something with the theme 'Ourselves'. This could be a painting, a drawing, a junk model or a plasticine model.  The choice is your child's! The projects are due in on Friday 13th October.

Friday 13th October

 This week the children have enjoyed looking at a mini topic as well as the topic of Ourselves. They have learnt about the season of Autumn and enjoyed exploring the fallen leaves in the top area of the Foundation Stage outdoor area. The children have talked about what happens to the leaves in Autumn and have learnt about mixing colours to make Autumn leaves. We have a wonderful Autumn display in class, come and have a look at it!

We have a wonderful Autumn display in class, come and have a look at it! As well as this the children have read stories about Autumn including a story they loved called 'The Leaf Man.' The children used loose parts to make their own Leaf Man picture.

Friday 6th October

This week the children have been looking at their families. Some children shared photographs of their families with the rest of the class and then talked about their different family members. We noticed that some families are the same and some are different. We have drawn all the different people who are a part of our family.

 

Friday 22nd September

This week the children have been looking carefully at their own faces. They have painted a picture of themselves for our RE work. They learnt that God gave them their name and they are special. Whilst looking at their faces they noted that they have some similarities and difference with their friends.

 

Whilst using the playdough the children have created faces using loose parts such as buttons, pipe cleaners, shell and lolly sticks. Once the children had made their face they then learnt how to take a picture using the IPad. Their brilliant pictures are below!

All of the new children have settled into school brilliantly! They have learnt the everyday routines of our reception class, made new friends and enjoyed playing in their new classroom.  They all look so smart in the uniforms. Welcome to all our new families that have just joined Sacred Heart.
