Autumn Term YR
Our first theme this year is 'Me and My World'.
Throughout this first half-term we will be supporting children with settling into their new routines, encouraging them to make new friends and to feel confident in their new class. We will be teaching children about being helpful, kind and thoughtful at home and at school. In addition, we will be exploring with children how they are unique and special, the importance of friendship and how people in their family, school and local community are important and can help them.
On Wednesday 14th September we will be giving children an opportunity to talk about their own family. It would be wonderful if children could bring in a photo of their family to add to our class family tree.
Our second theme of the year is 'Twinkle, Twinkle'
During this half-term children will develop their knowledge of cultural and religious festivals celebrated around the world such as Diwali, Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day and Christmas.
Children will also develop their knowledge of the world around them by learning about the changing seasons and why we have day and night! They will also learn about animal who are nocturnal.
We'll continue to help child develop their self-care skills by learning about the importance of a good night's sleep and why it's important to brush our teeth twice a day.
