The first term is all about familiarising the children with the new routines and boundaries of school life and getting to know them! We kick off the school year with some stories about children's first days at school, discussing emotions, how we might be feeling and celebrating our differences and backgrounds, likes and dislikes.
We then learn about Supertato, a superhero vegetable that saves the day, and relate this to real life superheroes like Police, Firefighters, doctors, nurses and vets.
To finish the term off we will learn About Autumn and harvest time and being thankful for the food we have.
Within maths, we will learn the numbers 1-5, 1 more than, as well as simple 2D shapes, patterns and comparing quantities and measures.
Children will also be learning their first sounds! We will be practising singing songs and rhymes to help us tune into the different sounds finding the initial sound of words and beginning to bled to read simple words such as red and bin etc.
We also follow the chidlren's interests so topics are fluid and can move about and change depending on what the children want to learn about.
