Spring Term

Our topic this term is all about the ‘Big Wide World’.  The children will learn about the environmental changes that happen as we move from autumn to winter. They will explore water and ice as well as well as testing materials to find those that are waterproof.  We will look at contrasting environments and the animals that live there ( Arctic and Antarctica). Texts will be focus on the season of winter and writing will be inspired by the children’s imagination as we continue to enjoy the Drawing Club. In PE, children will explore movements and linking them together in dance and gymnastics.

Autumn Term

Our topic this term is entitled 'All About Me'.  Our focus for the children will initially be to ensure that they are happy and settled leaving their carer and coming into school, sharing and talking about their feelings, making friends and learning new routines. During the first 6 weeks, we will complete their Baseline Assessment through practical activities, discussion and observations. This will enable the staff to plan for your child's next steps in learning. Please have a look at the Autumn Curriculum Overview on the link below for a detailed overview of the autumn term curriculum.
