Autumn 1

 Look out for the weekly newsletter on Class Dojo. 


This half term, our topic is 'A Map of Me' where our main questions are 'Who am I?' and 'Who are you?' We will be focusing on getting to know each other, our environment, school and routines. We will learn songs and rhymes and focus on familiar stories as well as ones about 'ourselves', 'starting school' and 'families'.  The children will have lots of opportunities to learn through play and build new relationships with the adults and children in the class.


In our RWINc sessions the children will be introduced to Fred our frog! We will begin to learn sounds and how we can put these together to read words. Activities such as dough disco will help us to build strong muscles to help us with our writing and mark making. 


In our Maths sessions we will focus on lots of rhymes and songs. We will be exploring and comparing amounts to 5. Towards the end of the half term, 2D and 3D shapes will be our focus.


In our RE sessions we will be exploring the theme of 'Creation'. We will have lots of opportunities to talk about ourselves and why we are special, also those who are special to us. We will learn about how we are part of God's creation and how we can look after the world that God has created.
