# Our Autumn Term Journey

We are all very excited about welcoming another cohort of children into Reception this year. Keep checking back to see what fun we get up to!

The Reception Team

### Our first full week in Reception

Reception have finished their first full week in school! We are so proud of how well they have done, especially being so settled and happy at lunchtime. Here are some photos of the fun we've been having.

### Stick Week - celebrating sticks

This week in Reception we focused our learning around sticks. We used our imagination to think about what we could turn a stick in to and then what we could pretend a stick was. We had lots of amazing ides!

We could make Stickman
Maybe we could make a magic wand... I'm going to make a rainbow one.
a dinosaur, a broom, a walking stick, even a car!

We also read some stick themed stories. Both Stanley's Stick and It's Not a Stick are about using your imagination to turn a stick into lots of different things.

Some children then used sticks to make their own creations.

In Maths we have focused on sorting this week. First we sorted by colour. Miss Watmough, the Nursery teacher, needed our help to sort the toys into three colours; red, yellow and blue. Next, we needed to help Stickman, his family had got all muddled up and he needed us to sort them for him. We sorted sticks into the long (adult) sticks and short (children) sticks.

As a special treat we watched the story of Stickman on the board, all the children were so engrossed in whether Stickman would make it home!

### 28th September

Today something exciting happened! When we arrived at school today we were amazed to find GIANT footprints on the floor. Lots of children began to think about what could have caused these muddy footprints. We then went into the class room to investigate some more and we found lots of porridge and three bowls - a big bowl, a medium sized bowl and a small bowl. We wondered who could have made this mess?

Some children thought there must be three, as there were three bowls. Some children thought there must have been a big creature and a small creature as some of the footprints were big and some were small. We wondered who it could be that liked porridge.

Later in the day we found a small yellow haired girl hanging up in the creative area. We decided this must be Goldilocks and that it must have been The Three Bears who had been in the classroom! We read the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears at hometime.

You can listen to the story here.

We have enjoyed exploring the porridge today!
