Term 1 - Making Friends
In term one our topic is ‘Making friends’. We spend lots of time getting to know each other and learning to play and share with our friends. We also learn to look after resources and learn our classroom routines. Throughout our topic we will learn lots about ourselves. We will talk about our families, our bodies and our homes.
Term 2 - Fabulous Food and Dazzling Drinks
We kick off our topic with a fun day using our senses to explore different food and drinks. We share lots of fantastic stories including Handa's Surprise, The Royal Dinner, The Tiger who came to tea and The Giant Sandwich. We will have Forest School in Leigh Woods. We will also be getting ready for our Christmas performance at the start of December and then lots of Christmas fun!
Term 3 - The Three Little Pigs
We really enjoy this topic learning the story ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We will learn all about pigs – what they eat and where they live. This topic is the perfect opportunity to become familiar with the repetition and rhyme of lots of our favourite stories. We will practise our construction skills and test different materials and see which will keep out that pesky wolf!
Term 4 - Dangerous Dinosaurs!
During this topic we will become paleontologists and search for dinosaur bones and fossils in the sand! We learn about different types of dinosaurs and their names even creating our own dinosaurs and dinosaur names. We learn and retell dinosaur stories and create a papier mache dinosaur world.
Term 5 - Under the sea
"Rainbow Fish" is the story we focus on for this topic. We learn the story and then innovate it by adding different characters and events. We investigate water and creatures that live under the sea. We explore real fish and even sew our own sea creatures!
