October in R/P.1.

15th Oct 2022

🍁🍂 Another busy few weeks in Reception and Primary One 🍂🍁

Lots of learning through play, continuing to build on existing skills and experimenting with new thoughts, ideas and creative thinking. 

Linking the World Around Us to Literacy, Numeracy and Art

Using the resources in our locality, the children observed the changes in autumn. They created a shared story to describe the colours they observed. The children sorted through their autumn treasures in the nature table, grouping things that belong together. They used these resources to explore process art through conker marbling and crayon leaf rubbing. Developing their observational skills and hand-to-eye co-ordination the children drew pictures of leaves they had found and expanded their vocabulary through discussion of leaf parts, patterns, texture and so much more.

Physical Development and Movement

The children continue to enjoy the lessons provided by AB Coaching. Developing balance and ball skills, along with partner work and turntaking.

They also explored some movement through yoga and began to explore how yoga is a good tool to use to help look after their mind as well as their body. They definitely needed a little R&R after such a busy few weeks. 

We hope you enjoy looking through our photos of our learning experiences.
