Outside learning in October

We love to play in our Early Years Garden. Have a look at some of the things we have been getting up to.

Week beginning 16th October

We have been very busy in reception this week. In our topic we have been learning all about Autumn. We explored different autumn objects and vegetables. We really liked drawing, washing and cutting open all of the autumn vegetables. We got to see what was inside and we made lots of mess. 

In our Maths this week we have been looking at patterns and numbers to 10. We used the cubes to make different patterns and see how we can show all of the numbers we know. 

Outside we got to build tall towers and see if we could make a tower taller than ourselves. We also loved building our own obstacle course to see how we can travel across the apparatus.

Today we had a visit from the School Nurses. They told us all about hand washing and why it is really important to keep the germs away. Then we got to practice brushing some teeth to make sure they were all clean. 

Tuesday 14th November - Pudsey Visit! 

Today we had a very special visitor telling us all about the special events that will be taking place on Friday. Can you tell who he is?
