Autumn Term 2 2017
Our Topic and Literacy Focus is ‘Celebrations and Space’
This term the general topic is ‘Space’. However for the first couple of weeks we will be thinking about different celebrations that take place during this time of year. These will be Diwali, Bonfire Night and Remembrance Day. When we start our Space topic the children will be learning about each planet by following our methods of Talk for Writing. This will involve the children learning the text visually and verbally through a text map, re-telling and art work.
Through the PSHE and SEAL curriculum the children will be thinking about the theme ‘Getting on and Falling Out’ linking to Anti-bullying week in November. Children will be exploring feelings relating to friendships and how other people may feel and react to their actions and words. Ways to support your child’s learning within this topic:
