Autumn 2019

Autumn Term 2019 (2nd half)

Celebrations

 

A safety talk by local firefighters will be a stunning start to our topic.  The children will be learning about Guy Fawkes Night and Diwali and will make firework pictures using a computer program.  They will listen to the story of Rama and Sita and make clay Diva lamps and colourful rangoli patterns.

 

The children will learn about alliteration and rhyme and listen to stories, rhymes and poems. The children will learn to say and write letter sounds and segment and blend them in words. They will write their names, labels and captions.  The Theatre and Toy Shop will be fun places to play. 

 

The children will sing number songs, count and label groups of objects and solve problems involving one more and one fewer.  They will learn the value of coins, compare heights, lengths and capacities and identify 2D shapes.  The children will make repeating patterns; learn the months of the year and the seasons, including key months when festivals and their birthdays occur.

 

In P.E., the children will follow Body Management activities.  In dance, they will perform a firework dance and an autumn dance.    

 

Learning about artwork by environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy and going on an autumn walk in the school grounds to collect leaves means that the children can create their own art works in groups.

 

The children will learn the Christmas story and celebrate Christmas by making decorations and cards.  As a fabulous finish, the children will dress up and perform the nativity story.
