A surprise visitor - Last week we sent a letter to the bear from 'We're going on a bear hunt' inviting him to come and visit us. Today he visited and we asked him a few questions. His name is Barnebus B. Bear and he chased the children because they woke him up from a deep sleep. The children loved meeting him and have been busy sending him Christmas cards.

         Autumn Term 2 - We're Going on Bear Hunt.....

Our second topic is Literacy based and is named after the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt.' We will learn this story off by heart and practice retelling it using actions and a story map. The children will write letters to the bear in our role play post office and will look after poorly teddy bears in our role play bear hospital. The children will then change a few features of the story to invent their own bear stories. We will finish off the topic by learning real facts about bears and their habitats.

            Autumn - Term 1 - 'What makes me special?'

During our first topic ‘What makes me special?’ the children will be settling into their first half term in school by sharing information about themselves, their families and their friends. Whilst learning about what makes them special, the children will also learn about their body and their five senses, the importance of their skeleton and how to keep healthy.

 

Shortly, we will be sending home a 'special bag' for your child to fill with their interests and photographs of their family. It would be great if parents could select the items with their child explaining the importance and why they are special such as a favourite snack, favourite toy or favourite photograph.The children will be sharing their 'special bag' in their key worker group and we can't wait to see what are in the 'special bags.'
