WHAT ARE WE LEARNING ABOUT?

It's a kind of magic!

 

Our theme for this half term is 'It's a kind of magic!' We will begin by using magical potions as a starting point for our learning. Our role play area has been set up to enable the children to use their imagination to create their own potions - adding different amounts, writing their potions down, drawing pictures to share their ideas.

During forest school, we will be taking our learning outside, and using the fairy garden that we have discovered to make links with our magic and potions theme.

This half term, we will also be focusing on being kind to others, and ways in which we can show this. Our focus book for this will be 'Have you filled a bucket'. During each day we will be supporting the children to write compliment slips when they notice other children being 'bucket fillers'.

As it is also a season full of celebrations, we will be learning about festivals and other occasions that we enjoy with our families and those that other people may celebrate such as Remembrance Day, Bonfire Night, Diwali, Birthdays and Christmas. We will also continue our learning about the changing seasons, looking at the similarities and differences that we see everyday in nature around us.
