Autumn Term 2021
During this Autumn term children have settled into school life at Northway Infants. Our topic has been Marvellous Me where we have painted self portraits, discussed our emotions and feelings and spoken about our families. We have enjoyed discovering all the fun activities we can do at school from early morning workouts to exploring the outside classroom. We have followed the school and classroom rules to keep SAFE. Look at the photos to see how HAPPY we are at school. We have become more INDEPENDENT by sorting ourselves out in a morning, putting our own welly boots on and changing for PE. We have practised and practised writing our names...NEVER GIVING UP and our teachers are very proud of how we have EXCELLED at this. We definitely SHINE like the stars on our jumpers!

In maths we explored many different things. We learnt language such as more and fewer where we looked at piles of objects and had to decide which had more. We sorted objected into groups, looked at taller and shorter and spoke about the capacity of a container. More recently we looked at patterns on animals and repeating patterns using objects or colours.

Our focus so far has been on Set 1 sounds, learning the sounds the letter makes, associating it to an object, learning to correctly form the letter and begin to build words. We also enjoy doing lots of activities related to each sound.
We have loved getting our welly boots on and exploring out on the field. We know that if we hear 'Treetrunks' we must run back into our group ready to listen to the next activity. We got to hide our friends names and photos and then they had to go and find them, we made faces using natural resources and decorated hedgehogs.
