Autumn 2 - Curriculum overview
Week 4 - Have you ever been to a wedding?
This week we have been learning about weddings and love! We discussed why people get married and why some people don't. We looked at some of Mrs Townsends wedding photos and discussed that Love is Love! On Friday, we made some cupcakes with pink icing and love heart sweets!
Week 3 - How do you celebrate your birthday?
This week we have been looking at all things birthdays! We have been writing Birthday cards, making sandwiches for a party and we even had 2 friend's birthdays this week! So, we had a party to celebrate. We have been adding instrument sound effects to a story in phonics and been looking about the number 3 in maths.
Week 2 - What did you do on Bonfire night?
This week we have been learning all about bonfire night. The children shared their experiences, and we had our own bonfire on our playground! We enjoyed a hot dog and mushy peas from our food stall and used pipe cleaners as sparklers to have a go at writing our name in the air! On Friday, we learnt about Remembrance Day and why we wear poppies. We were all very respectful during the 2 minutes silence to remember the brave soldiers who fought for us. We also made a group painting, to go on our outdoor poppy display, near the school entrance and made poppy biscuits.
Week 1 - What is Diwali?
This week we have been learning all about Diwali. We tried some foods, tried on some celebration clothes and made diya lamps to celebrate Diwali, the festival of light!
