Base 1 News Catch up
Base 1 have been busy bees settling in as a reception class while also adapting to being Year 1's. We have been working on the "Colour Monster" story and discussing how we have been feeling on returning to school as well as starting "big" school. We have been reading lots of different stories to help us with starting school as well as adjusting to the new situation.
In Reception we have been getting to know each other alongside getting to know Mrs. Dopierala and Mrs. Winward. We have started on our letters and sounds and have been practicing our segmenting and blending skills. We are also working on our number skills. We have been sorting and classifying as well as discussing more than and less than using concrete objects. We have been working on our counting skills and using these across our school day to help when we need glue sticks, paintbrushes and many other things.
In Year 1 we have been focusing on our place value and number skills. We have been working on ordering numbers, more than and less than as well as our problem solving and reasoning skills. We are continuing to working hard on our phonics skills.
In our outdoor area we are continuing our learning through exploring textures, scents in our herb garden and various other natural objects that are in our outdoor area.
Mrs. Dopierala and Mrs. Winward have had some delicious herbal teas prepared for them.
Towers have been built, compared, built taller, built smaller and many new houses for the three pigs designed. The big bad wolf made an appearance in role play and blew our houses down.
Base 1 have been discussing Autumn and Harvest. We have had several Autumn Wrenbury walks and painted Autumn trees which will make an appearance in our Learning Journeys We have used conkers and maize, explored and discussed as well using them for painting and exploring the patterns they make. Some of our children are very knowledgeable when it comes to harvest and crops and have been explaining to others what happens. We have been lucky enough to have parents that have sent in maize, wheat, conkers and acorns to help us on our Autumn exploration journey.
