Term 1 Summary:

We’ve had a super start to Reception this term! We’ve been busy learning all of our school routines and have been playing with our new friends.  We’ve all settled in really well to life at Even Swindon and our teachers are excited to see all of the wonderful things that we are going to learn this year.

Our topic this term has been ‘All About Me’, we’ve drawn portraits of ourselves, talked about all of the parts of the body, thought about what happens as we get older and have carried out investigations about our senses.  We’ve also enjoyed talking about the members of our family and drawing pictures of them too.

We’ve read lots of stories this term, one of our favourites has been ‘Owl Babies’, we enjoyed acting out the story and making our own owls out of pine cones!  Another favourite has been ‘Ruby’s Worry’ where we learnt that we need to talk about our worries and be kind to each other.

The outside classroom has been one of our favourite places to spend time this term, we’ve made potions, raced conkers, built very tall towers using repeating patterns and have loved playing with the vegetable shop!

What a busy and exciting term we’ve had!
