This Term's Learning

"What makes us special?"

Topic Overview

Our big question for the autumn term is 'What makes us special?' We will be using this question to explore new activities, and places as well as stretching our imaginations. 

For more information, please view our curriculum map here.

Our learning is planned around the interests and needs of the children so these objectives will be adapted  as the term progresses based on the needs of the individual children.

Home Learning

School expectation is that children spend a maximum of 10 minutes per day doing home learning activities. 



We recommend reading to your child every day. Your child will shortly come home with a picture book. Please encourage your child to tell the story using the pictures. Model using story language.



Encourage your child to mark-make for different reasons at home. This may be drawing a picture, or making a shopping list using swiggles and other marks. Children will begin to learn their first sounds later this term.


Encourage your child to find numerals up to 10 in the local environment, such as door numbers, number plates etc.
Encourage your child to count objects to 10, such as collecting 4 tins of beans in the supermarket, or counting out spoonfuls of flour when baking. Play games where you and your child have to pick out 2D shapes in the environment.
