Autumn Term 1 Curriculum plan

26th September

It was a bit of a spooky week in Raindrops as the children were welcomed into class by a very large skeleton, but it wasn't for Hallowe'en.

We were looking at our bones and why we need them. The children enjoyed looking at x-ray pictures and helping to make their own bony body pictures using cotton buds. They also did some work outside, drawing around their bodies with chalk.

We watched Funny Bones and read skeleton stories together. Afterwards we could colour in some skeleton pictures or make bones out of playdough.

19th September

This week we opened the door to two new friends in the class: Hinaya and Ire. We would like to welcome them and their families.

The children enjoyed looking at their baby photos this week and we chatted about how much they had grown. We looked at the colour of their eyes, hair and skin and we talked about who had brothers and sisters.

We watched Number blocks and joined in with lots of number games and rhymes using our fingers to count to 10. They were introduced to number 1.

We also had lots of fun doing some dancing in the classroom and learnt how to listen to the music to know when to FREEZE as it stopped.

12th September

It was our first full week together as a class and we are enjoying building new friendships. Each morning we take part in our circle time activities where we answer our names when the register is taken and then sing 'Who came to school today' which helps us to learn the names of our friends and teachers.

We have been able to use the inside and outside area this week and lots of us have already chosen our favourite activities.

We have helped to make some artwork to put up in the hall for a display which will focus on the artist Kandinsky, using lots of Autumnal colours and different sized circles. We would also like to thank Mrs Markowicz for helping us to put up our class display of all the photographs of ourselves.

5th September 2022

Over the past few days the children have been settling into the routines of the classroom and outside area. It has been lovely to be able to welcome our new families to Raindrops as well as seeing some of the older children return with smiles on their faces.

We have played, talked, sung songs, sat for carpet time, shared stories and learnt the actions and words of our class prayer.
