Autumn 1 - MarveLlous Me
As the children start school we begin by exploring the topic Marvellous Me. We will be reading the ‘My Map Book’ and learning about; who is in our family, what we like to eat, what toys we like to play with and considering the emotions we feel. The children share treasure boxes they have made at home and talk about what is important to them. We learn to draw ourselves and paint pictures of our faces. The children will be thinking about themselves and considering how they are similar and different to their friends.
Autumn 2 - Once Upon a Rhyme
Our learning journey will continue as we then begin to explore Nursery Rhymes. We encourage the children to share their favourite with us and enjoy learning lots of different rhymes.
We talk about the characters in the Nursery Rhymes and share how they may be feeling. We think about ways to help Little Bo Peep to stop losing her sheep, and how we can solve The Queen of Hearts missing tart problem.
To celebrate all our lovely, learning we come together and enjoy a Jam Tart Tea Party, with family and friends, with jam tarts all hand-made by the children.
Questions we'll be asking:
- Who's in your family?
- How could we help Little Bo-Peep to stop losing her sheep?
- What is your favourite toy? Why?
- Can you sing your favourite nursery rhyme?
- How do you make jam tarts?
- Which character will you pretend to be?
- Where do we post a letter in Broadwater?
