EYFS Autumn 2

This half term we have been learning our phase 2 phonic sounds and our keywords. Don't forget to keep practising them at home!


We experimented with colour mixing and then used this information to mix our own colours for our river pictures.


We explored floating and sinking, predicting and sorting objects and materials according to whether they would float or sink. Then we made our own boat. We were very pleased when our boats did float, especially when they could hold multilink "passengers"!

This half term we have been reading books about working together. Firstly, we enjoyed Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper...

...then we read Mr Gumpy's Outing by John Burningham

Working Together

We also used the small world play to retell stories. Here we are working together to retell Mr Gumpy's outing!

We put vegetables in the water tray and made our own "soup". We had to spoon, scoop and sieve our ingredients and then count them. Some of us wrote recipes!

 We retold both stories in role and then made our own books. 



We mapped the story and retold it with Makaton actions. 

We made puppets and worked together to make our own puppet shows.
