Autumn Term 2019
Why do you love me so much?
In the first part of Autumn Term we are going to be learning all about ourselves and our families. We will get to know the children in our class and learn the routines. We will all be learning to listen to each other and respond appropriately. We will talk about who is in our family, where we live and the sorts of things we do with our family. We will talk about healthy eating, sorting foods that are healthy and foods that are treats. We will also be finding out about our other senses of hearing, seeing, touching and smelling. We will also be learning about people who help us and what they do. Owls children will begin to use their Planning and Review books to draw pictures of what they want to do in Discovery Time. All children will be doing lots of counting - in number rhymes, counting objects and counting things such as claps or jumps.
How many Colours in a Rainbow?
In the second part of Autumn Term we are going to be learning all about different colours. We will talk about colours that are usually associated with different celebrations eg orange for Halloween and red and green for Christmas. We will use colour charts to match the colour of something and find out what the shade has been named. We will be looking at the colours of plants and observing the change of colour as Autumn turns into Winter. We will be mixing our own colours and using them to paint rainbows trying to use the correct colour names of the rainbow. We will talk about the sights and sounds of fireworks.
Each Friday we will ask children to bring in something small that is a given colour or wear a sticker, hair band or socks that are the colour.
We believe that all our children have the right to
Powerful learning experiences – Feel safe and be happy – Be treated as individuals
We work together to respect
Everyone in our community regardless of difference
We realise that we all have a responsiblity to
Make the best contribution we can
