Autumn Term

This term we will be thinking about “The World and My Place in it”. We will explore our identity and what it means to be 4/5 in 2021, asking ourselves  “what makes me special, and what is special to me?”

As we discuss our favourite things and the things that make us special we will discover how we are similar and how we are different. We will be thinking about the things that unite our community, and celebrate the differences between us. We will ask our parents and grandparents to tell us about their childhoods and compare how their lives were to ours. Our teachers love to listen to music from the past with us, and to read children’s stories that our family members remember enjoying when they were 4. We especially love finding out about traditional foods in our cultures and trying some seasonal autumnal foods. We will be learning about the Goose Fair. Using art and ICT we will observe and investigate seasonal changes. 

After half term we will be learning some Autumn poems and asking “who looks after our community?”. We hope to welcome lots of visitors from the police, fire, medical and postal services! Of course we will also be baking some Winter treats, planting some bulbs for Spring and enjoying lots of snuggly story time!!
