Autumn 1 Sensational Me!


This term we have been looking at the topic 'Sensational Me.' We have looked at the senses and our body parts. We used our senses during different investigations - using our sense of touch, smell, sight and taste!  We have labelled our body parts and sang songs to remind us what they are called. 


Our topic has linked to History this half term by thinking about how we have changed since a baby and using vocabulary like 'long ago', 'then' and 'in the past'. 


We have also looked at art by Picasso, looking at how he moved the different body parts around to make abstract portraits.  We used mirrors to look carefully at our own features to allow us to draw our own self-portraits.  We made some delicious fruit kebabs in DT and were able to design, make and evaluate them. 



In Computing we have been practicing how to log in with our own usernames and passwords. We have also created our own Avatar to protect our identity. 


In Religious Education this term we have been looking at 'Who is a Christian'?' We have been looking at the Creation Story and the different values that Christian's hold.


In our Literacy lessons we have started a new scheme called 'The Write Stuff'. We have wrote sentences on the books Ruby's Worry and We're Going on a Bear Hunt.


During Maths lessons we have looked at numbers 1-20 in lots of detail.  We have learnt how to count forwards and backwards and listened to lots of songs to help us to remember the number order. We have also learnt how to find one more and one less of different numbers as well as counting in 10s. Finally, we have started to split numbers into their tens and ones. 


In PE this half term, we have been learning new gymnastic skills. We have learnt 3 new rolls: teddy bear, log and egg. As well as, completing a sequence involving a roll and different jumps. 


During Music this half term, we have used our Charanga scheme to learn about the rhythms and pace to the song 'Hey, you!'. 


We have loved using the different resources in our continuous provision like the wooden blocks to design and build houses and lots of other imaginative creations!
