Friday 10th November 2023- 

Poppy class have been very busy this week. We have continued to discuss and learn about bonfire night on Monday. During group time we discussed the fireworks that we saw over the weekend. We have also continued to talk and do different activities around Goldilocks and the three bears like trying porridge! We have learnt a new song (see below) This week we also looked into the festival Diwali and made divas out of clay which we will paint and decorate next week and we also made patterns using sand to create rangoli patterns. 

 

When Goldilocks went to the house of the bears

When Goldilocks went to the house of the bears,
Oh what did her two eyes see?
A bowl that was huge,
A bowl that was small,
A bowl that was tiny and that was all,
She counted them: one, two, three.

When Goldilocks went to the house of the bears,
Oh what did her two eyes see?
A chair that was huge,
A chair that was small,
A chair that was tiny and that was all,
She counted them: one, two, three.

When Goldilocks went to the house of the bears,
Oh what did her two eyes see?
A bed that was huge,
A bed that was small,
A bed that was tiny and that was all,
She counted them: one, two, three.

When Goldilocks ran from the house of the bears,
Oh what did her two eyes see?
A bear that was huge,
A bear that was small,
A bear that was tiny and that was all,
They growled at her: grr, grr, grr!

Autumn Term 2 - Our Topic this term is Once Upon a Time

In the Once Upon a Time project, your child will be introduced to the wonderful world of stories. They will listen to a range of traditional tales and have the chance to act out the stories in their play. They will also listen to alternative contemporary stories to see different viewpoints from the characters. They will use the stories to think about how life has changed from when the stories were written. They will also make up their own stories and make masks, props and puppets to act out their stories.

Supporting your child at home

  • Read traditional stories and fairy tales to your child.
  • Visit your local library and choose picture books to share.
  • Talk about the characters in stories and whether they like or dislike them.
  • Talk about how the characters in stories behave and what they could do differently.

Our Topic this term is Me and My Community - 

 

In the Me and My Community, your child will learn about the school community and building friendships. They will explore the school grounds and find out about all the people in school who are there to help them. They will explore how they are special and unique and how everyone’s family is different. They will take part in practical activities to support them to build new friendships and explore what makes a good friend. They will also find out about people in the community who help us, including doctors, nurses, and the emergency services.

Supporting your child at home

  • Look at family photographs together and discuss who is part of your family and extended family.
  • Look at baby photographs and talk about how they have grown.
  • Look at any childhood photographs of parents and grandparents.
  • Talk about the things you like to do together and places you like to go.
