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 things. We have started to learn so many new things!


In maths we have been learning all of our numbers to 10. We will be learning all of our numbers to 20 next! We have been learning how to count objects and ways of doing this. Using objects around the room we have been creating repeating patterns. Our school has lots of different shapes around it so we have been going on a 2d shape hunts to see what 2d shapes we can see. We have been measuring objects by weight, height and length to see which one is the tallest/shortest, longest/shortest and heaviest/lightest.

In Read. Write. Inc. we have been learning a sound a day and how to write the sound using the letter rhyme. Fred the Frog sent us a message asking if we can help him by listening to the sounds to see what word he is saying. A lot of the children have enjoyed teaching their friends the letter sounds.


We have been learning to write our own names, first and last every morning, we are getting very good at it. When writing words, we have been listening to the initial and final sounds. We don’t just use pencils to write with in Foundation Stage 2 we write with chalk, felt tips, paint. Sand, glitter, sugar, shaving foam and even mud are fun to write in too.


In our outside are we have been working together to make a range of things using theresources. Some children made a Gruffalo’s den for the Gruffalo to sleep over. The children have been experimenting different ways of moving on the climbing frame and also learning how to use it safely. We have alThey have been exploring the changes in the environment as we go into Autumn. After collecting lots of leaves and conkers we looked at the similarities and differences.
