Autumn learning in Class 1

The children have been busy learning the theme of ‘Autumn’ as part of our ‘Wonderful Me’ topic.

The children sang beautifully in their harvest festival, using actions and props to support. Well done Class 1!

The children loved exploring the outdoors. We collected leaves, exploring colours, size and shape. We took the leaves back to the classroom and used them as part of our learning.

The children created autumn leaf and tree paintings using skills learnt from their write dance and from what they had seen on their autumn walks. The children painted their tree, starting at the bottom; and then finger painted or painted leaves using a paintbrush on their tree using autumn colours.

The children have been busy creating their own little hedgehogs. The children looked at images of hedgehogs and created a hedgehog body, and then added sticks to create their own hedgehog. The children will paint their hedgehogs this week and add details such as eyes.

What a great start we have made to our ‘Autumn’ theme week. We will continue to explore this theme this week as part of our ‘Wonderful Me’ topic.


Hello from class 1 :) We have been busy learning this week.

Class 1 have been busy exploring sounds in the environment and learning their phonics this week. We focused on the letters s a t p. The children have been learning the letter sound and letter name, and mark making the letters too. The children have loved exploring the circles and eights in write dance. The children have been busy practising their mark making skills in the environment. The children remembered how to form the letters and shapes by saying the formation as they wrote and drew them.

The children have also been investigating what numbers mean this week. The children have searched for numbers in the environment, read numbers and counted amounts of objects for different numbers. The children had great fun and talked about what they knew about numbers with great enthusiasm.

The children have loved sharing books in guided reading and developing their PE skills in PE with Chris. What a great week they have had, well done Class 1.

We look forward to another fun-filled week. Have a great weekend.

The Class 1 Team 🙂
