We now have a mud kitchen in our outside area and the children helped to plant some flowers and herbs. We have been remembering to check the area regularly to see how the plants have grown and changed throughout the year. We hope to plant some sunflowers next!

Our story focuses for this term are:

     Jack and the Beanstalk                                 The Fish who could wish

                                          

We found a giant key hanging from one of the posts in our outside area! We had a chat about where we thought the key might have come from. We decided that it must belong to the giant. The children wanted to let the giant know that we found his key, so we wrote letters to the giant!

Topic Web Autumn 2 

We have learnt the story of 'Not Now Bernard'. The monster in the story came into our classrooms over the weekend and made a mess in our book corners! 

                               

 

We have also spend time looking at the popular story 'The Gruffalo' In the ICT suite we had a go at drawing our own pictures of the Gruffalo. 

        

We explored the traditional tale 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'

We had a visit from The Rainbow Theatre who acted out this story, along with some other famous fairytales. Some of the children joined in, playing some of the characters too!

 

                               

 

Reception performed their nativity to parents and carers. 

 'A Wriggly Nativity'

        

                

 

At Saltdean Primary we have five Learning Powers that we try to remember to help us to maintain a growth mindset. 

In Reception, we introduce these learning powers for the first time. We have been talking to the children about our first two learning powers, which are 'Have a go' represented by a monkey and 'Persevere' represented by a tortoise. 

The children have been using resources to make these animals and we have displayed them in our classrooms to remind us to always have a go, and keep trying when things get tough!
