Autumn 1 - What Happens When I Fall Asleep?

This half term, we have explored the question, ‘What happens when we fall asleep?’ We have learned about nocturnal animals and explored different habitats. We have spent time reading re-telling the story of ‘Whatever Next!’; spending time in our outdoor area creating bird feeders.  We have discussed dreams and made some beautiful dream catchers and dream jars. To end our topic, we enjoyed a school pyjama day where we listened to bedtime stories and drank hot chocolate.  In addition, We have taken part In a number of workshops including; Hoopstarz and Circus Skills.  All in all, we have had a very busy and enjoyable half-term.

Autumn 2 - Are We There Yet?

Curriculum Overview

This half term, we have explored the question ‘Are we there yet?’ We enjoyed learning about different modes of transport and had fun being creative with vehicle tyres. We read a number of books, although we mainly focused on ‘Emma Jane’s Aeroplane’ and some of the countries she visited; France and Italy.  We had themed weeks where we learned lots of interesting facts, made some of the famous landmarks and tasted various foods from these countries. Throughout Advent, Reverend Jennie visited our class every week , as we explored different parts of the Christmas story including; Angels, Journeys, Stars and Gifts. To end the half term, we had lots of festive fun; making Reindeer antlers, party hats, placemats and much more. We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas party food and games, especially musical statues and pass the parcel.
