In Orange class this term our topic is “All About Me”. We will be talking and learning about ourselves and each other. We will be exploring and naming parts of our body, looking carefully at our faces, talking about families and homes and recording what we do and do not like. Our outcomes this term will be to make a range of self portraits, an “all about me book” to share with the class and to plan and prepare a healthy snack.
This term the children in Orange class have settled into their new school. They have started to develop friendships and learn each other’s names. All the pupils have started to follow a more structured timetable with literacy and numeracy in the mornings and topic work in the afternoon. This has been accompanied by daily phonics, attention and listening and story sessions.
So far, we have made tracings around our bodies, looked closely at our faces and drawn several self-portraits. We have talked about and used our senses to further explore the inside and outside school environment.
Next term we will continue with our topic ‘all about me’, talking about our families, homes, likes and dislikes and special celebrations.

Next term we will launch out new topic ‘bears’ by inviting children to bring a bear from home or a favourite toy to a ‘teddies bears picnic’. We will develop each child’s communication, literacy, numeracy and foundation skills through exploring a range of ‘bear’ themed books including ‘Where’s My Teddy?’ and ‘Whatever Next’ and ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. Our science project will be investigating different bears from around the world, their environments and hibernation.
Though the spring term there will be a focus on role-play. The class team will create daily opportunities for the children to engage in adult and child lead imaginative play activities. Towards the end of the term we will learn about and celebrate the Chinese New year.
