Autumn 1 – Who are you?

This has been our first half term at St Giles Academy. We have really enjoyed exploring our new classroom and meeting lots of new people. We have started to learn so many new things!



We have been practising writing our names. We do this everyday! We have been using lots of nice things to make our names, including making our names out of beads, writing our names in glitter and using chalk on the floor outside!






We have been learning how to count to 10 and have even started practising counting to 20! We have been learning how to put objects in a line to count them accurately and then touch each one to make sure we count them all. We helped the Gruffalo put his purple prickles back on!






Every day we learn a new sound. We use Read. Write. Inc. to learn these sounds and practice finding them hidden amongst other sounds. We have our own aprons with mini sound cards and mini Fred Frogs to pretend being the teacher and teach other children!





While learning about ourselves we have discovered a love of the Gruffalo story! We went on our own Gruffalo hunt around the playground to try and find him and found all the animals from the story as well as the Gruffalo who was hiding!
