Welcome to Base 11!
This term we have got lots of exciting mini-topics to look at, starting with ‘Marvellous Me’. This will include looking at ourselves, how we have changed from being babies, our emotions, our bodies and our families.
Our ‘talk for writing’ unit for this term is ‘Peace at Last’. The children will be encouraged to join in with the repeating phrases and retell the story using puppets, props and instruments.
We will then move on to our Autumn topic, where we will be looking closely at seasonal changes as we go on an Autumn walk, collecting natural materials to make nature boxes.
Just before we break up for half term, we will be celebrating Diwali, ‘festival of lights’. We will be making our own Rangoli patterns and trying new foods at our Indian banquet.
When we return after half term, we will be learning all about bonfire night and how to stay safe, before moving onto Christmas and our winter topic.
Throughout the term, we will be looking at at various fiction, non-fiction and poetry, providing lots of opportunities for speaking and listening activities.
Monday and Wednesday are our PE days this term but we ask that children leave their PE kit in school all week if possible.
