During the Autumn term we have explored two topics. Our first was ‘All About Me’ where we got to know each other and our daily routines and we have settled into school life in our reception class.
In English we focused on three books and rhymes . We have really enjoyed sharing the stories of ‘Stop! Elephant , Stop!’, ‘Walking through the jungle’ and ‘Ten in a bed’. The three rhymes we have learnt are ‘Shakey, Shakey‘, ‘Down in the jungle’ and ‘Five little Ducks’. However, we listen to other stories, rhymes and songs on a daily basis alongside out letters and sounds phase 1 phonics programme.
We have also been concentrating on circle time activities and developing social skills.
Our second topic is ‘How many colours in a rainbow?’ We are focussing on colour and exploring paint, coloured foam and other messy play activities! We have loved the stories of ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear’ and ‘We’re going in a Bear Hunt’ as well as our number rhymes ‘Five little speckled frogs’ and ‘Five currant buns’.
Our day has a structured story and rhyme time each morning as well as a speech and language session. In the afternoons we have our ‘Attention Autism’ lesson by which we teach a variety of skills including number, art and food play.
In maths we are continuing to focus on number and counting as well as matching and sorting activities.
