Autumn Term

Welcome to Church Lench First School to our new and returning families we are so pleased to be back in the school building! The new children in Reception are already learning the routines of school life and are making lots of new friends. 

Please follow the link below to the topic map for our learning in this half term. Our topic is 'Marvellous Me!'. 

The children have really enjoyed being back with their friends and meeting their new classmates. They have played together so well and have spent time exploring the resources and areas that we have in class. 
The children in Year 1 (while their Reception friends were part time) have been reading and completing work using the story of 'The Colour Monster'. They have been learning more about their emotions and discussing what makes them happy, sad, scared and angry. We have been sharing our work in the afternoons with our brand new classmates who have been enjoying listening to the story too.

To start off our maths learning for this term, the Year 1 children have been consolidating their concept of number. We have looked at careful counting, the ability to 'visualise' a number (e.g. the pattern of dots that a number six would make on a dice) and being able to recognise a pattern of number without counting it. We have been so impressed with how much effort the children have put into their learning. 
We have been learning more about our bodies. We have learnt the names of body parts and parts of our face. We took selfies using different filters to see if we could change our facial features and disguise who we really are!
