Our Learning – Autumn Term 2023

The over-arching theme for Autumn is ‘I wonder what is special’. Whilst we follow a long term plan, we are led by the children’s interests where possible and so topics are always subject to change.

We started the year looking at ‘All About Me’, thinking about our ‘unique’ selves and our feelings, including lots of work on Zones of Regulation; and we then moved on to look at families and friends. This allowed the children to get to know one another and share their thoughts and feelings on a topic that they could discuss more easily.

In Autumn 2, we are looking at ‘Celebrations’. We will begin by looking at Diwali and Bonfire Night and will also look at Remembrance Day and Christmas celebrations during the half term. We will also continue to think about families, friends and our own ‘superheroes’, including people who help us. With our Christmas performance as well, it is sure to be another busy half term!

The Autumn plans are shown in more detail in the overviews below.
