Our Learning – Spring 2022
The over-arching theme for this term is ‘I wonder how things change and grow’, which should again allow us to incorporate a vast array of mini topics. This half term we will be looking at ‘Amazing Animals’, thinking firstly about animals we might find in polar regions and colder climates to enable us to discuss a change of season; we will then be moving on to look at animals from other areas (jungle and farm animals) in line with the children’s interests.
For further details of our current learning in each area, please see the updated Curriculum Overview below.

Our Learning – Autumn Term 2021
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 and so topics are always subject to change. We are starting the year looking at ‘All About Me’, thinking about our ‘unique’ selves and our feelings; we will then be moving on to look at families and friends. This will really allow the children to get to know one another and share their thoughts and feelings on a topic they can 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 thinking about families, friends and pets. It is sure to be a busy half term!
