Autumn 2 in Emerald Class – ‘Let’s Celebrate’

We have had a brilliant start to the school year in Emerald Class, the children have been making new friends, learning our routines and following our Going for Gold Rules. This is making Emerald Class a special place, full of laughter, fun and learning.

Our topic this half term is ‘Let’s Celebrate!’. We will be sharing what special events we celebrate with our families and how we celebrate them. We will be celebrating the children’s birthdays and learning about Diwali and why this is a special time for some people.

In RE we will be learning why Christmas is special to Christians and we will be talking about what we did for Bonfire Night and describing the fireworks. As well as lots of talking and listening activities, we will be getting busy creating snowflakes, a post box, lamps for Diwali and firework pictures.

We will also have lots of writing opportunities, such as writing letters to Santa and making Christmas cards for people we care about.

In maths, we will continue counting and ordering numbers, introducing 3D shapes and some children will begin adding and taking away numbers.
