Autumn Term 1 in Emerald Class – ‘All About Me’

Welcome to Autumn term in Emerald class. It is a very exciting time for our new children and their families. We are looking forward to settling them in and getting to know their friends and classroom.

Our topic for this half term is ‘All About Me’. This is a brilliant opportunity to help children learn about each other and each others’ families. The theme helps children realise that every person is unique and special. They also learn that every child’s thought and ideas are important and no one person is more or less important than another!

In literacy we will be joining in with rhymes and showing an interest in stories with repeated refrains. We will talk about our favourite story or rhyme. We will engage in extended conversations about stories- learning new vocabulary. Our activities will centre around core text such as ‘Owl Babies’ and ‘Supertato’. In phonics, we will learn that letters make special sounds.

In maths, we will sing rhymes counting to 5 and beyond. Some of these rhymes will help us begin to understand the concept of one more/one less.

In R.E we will answer the question ‘Who Made this Wonderful World?’. We will take lots of nature walks around our school to explore and understand how special our planet really is. Within this unit we will explore how unique and special we all are.

We are looking forward to getting to know all our new friends in Emerald class and hope for a wonderful term full of fun, learning and laughter.
