Autumn Term 2
Glow and Glitter
This half term our topic is 'Glow and Glitter'. We will be exploring all things that sparkle, glitter, glow, reflect, shine and twinkle. We will be sorting out different objects by their appearance and describing them. We will be looking at different light sources and how shadows are made. We will be learning the nursery rhymes 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' and 'Hey Diddle Diddle' and performing them using actions and stick puppets.
We will be having a Bonfire Night week where we will learn about Bonfire Night safety rules and how to keep safe. We will also be learning to name and recognise simple 2d shapes and using them to make our own rockets.
As Christmas approaches the children will be able to enjoy decorating the classroom with different lights and Christmas decorations. They will also have to use their listening skills and follow instructions on how to decorate our Christmas tree. We will learn all about the traditions of Christmas and enjoy a variety of Christmas stories.
Keep and eye out for lots of pictures to see what the children get up to.
This first half term our topic is Dragon Tales. We will be exploring a variety of traditional tales and taking a look back in time at medieval castles and who used to live in them. We will use our imaginations and have lots of fun looking through our dressing up box to become, Kings, Queens, Knights, Princes and Princesses. We will be using recyclable materials to make our own Caterpillar castle and use repeating patterns to decorate our own crowns! These are just some of the fun things we will be getting up to this half term. Keep an eye out below for lots of photos of the things we will be doing in class.
