Term 1 Topic Plan For Parents


Term 1 – Bears

This term we've been learning about bears.  We each have our own Willesborough school bear and they've been helping us settle in so nicely!  They've helped us explore our classroom and get to know the school.

We have been reading lots of different stories about Bears.  We read Goldilocks and made our own porridge and decided which was the tastiest.  We helped the Bears to sort out their house and ordered the objects from smallest to largest! 

When we read Whatever Next we loved "going to space."  We made our own rockets using different materials - take a look at our great designs!  We practiced recognising the different shapes when doing this and have got really good at remembering the different shape names.




 Thank you to everybody that came to the Teddy Bear's picnic.  We loved preparing the biscuits to share with you!  All the children did so well performing their Bear songs!




 Term 2 Topic Plan For Parents


Term 2

We have loved learning all about Bonfire night.  We hosted a workshop where children were able to make fantastic fireworks with their grown ups.  Look at their super work!  We've also been busy counting fireworks and writing about the sounds that they make!



As part of our topic on "terrific transformations" we have been thinking all about seasonal change. We have been enjoying reading "Percy the Park Keeper" and were excited to find that some of Percy's animals could come and visit us!  We got to see a Rabbit, an Owl, a Mouse, a Duck and a Hedgehog and learnt lots about each animal!



We have been exploring different seasonal vegetables and used them to make soup for The Gruffalo!  We enjoyed tasting it and left it out for The Gruffalo to eat!"
