An Overview of Autumn

Autumn  in EYFS a snapshot!

We took the time to appreciate the changing colours of the leaves in our Woodland area. We jumped in the puddles and ran through the crunchy leaves and had the most amazing Forest School experiences with the wonderful Jim from ‘Community by Nature’. We discussed our likes/dislikes reflecting on our outdoor learning, ‘Listening to children’s voices and recognising these are expressed in a range of ways, including nonverbally, and is central to inclusive practice. Children’s right to be heard and have their views taken seriously was established via Article 12 of the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC 1989)

We explored pumpkins of many shapes and sizes and enjoyed making veggie soup. We saved the pumpkins and the seeds for the birds to feed on in the outdoor surrounding areas of the school. We have started creating a hedgerow for our birds and insects to nest along with supporting the children to have an awareness of pollution, their food, and how we can support natural habitats.

We made poppies for our soldiers, both men, and women who went to war to give us a better future and for those who lost their lives we prayed for them through the month of November. We participated in the remembrance on the 11th November at the 11th hour and understood why we should be quiet and listen carefully to ‘The Last Post’ played by the Vicar on the bugle. By watching the older peers we learn through example that this is a time to be respectful and think about others.


We enjoyed many play experiences linking to our home interests and what we have learned through our daily reading and the Power of Reading. Take a look at the school's Twitter page. Play is essential for children’s development, building their confidence as they learn to explore, relate to others, set their own goals, and solve problems. Children learn by leading their own play, and by taking part in play which is guided by adults. Statutory framework for the early year’s foundation stage, EYFS reforms early adopter version 2020

In December we celebrated the month of Lent through weekly assemblies, learning the Lord’s Prayer, and listening to Christmas prayers and hymns. We observed the wreath of Lent and the symbolism of how the light represents the birth of Jesus. We learned about the importance of the Christmas story and acted out the important roles. We understand how Jesus gave us Christmas and the presents we received represented the presents Jesus was given by the three kings.

As a team, we thank our parents and carers for the kind words, continuous support, and gifts at Christmas time which were truly overwhelming. We hope you all have an amazing Christmas time and you will be kept close in our thoughts and prayers and we will see you in 2022.
