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.'
