Autumn Term 1
Topic - Know your Place
(School and Home Community)
With the help of Historic England and our class activities, the children have
learnt about the world around them, the United Kingdom and their local community.
Historic England supplied the school with some maps of our local area, and the children enjoyed
spending time looking at the maps and locating their home and key locations within their village.
One of our class activities was to create a map of their own. The children were encouraged to include
some key elements, such as roads, rivers, places of worship and a compass.
The children are encouraged to observe the changes across the four seasons,
and describe the weather associated with the seasons, and how the day length varies.
In class 1 we start the day being weather watchers, to create a daily weather report for the class board.
The children are encouraged to describe what they have observed on their journey to school.
Expressive Arts and Design
This term the children will be encouraged to use natural and made materials to communicate
ideas in weaving and fabric-resist pieces.
The children enjoyed creating images using various medium, such as Wax resist, Brusho powder paints, natural materials which the children had foraged for themselves. For example, branches, twigs, leaves and pebbles.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
