Autumn Term 1 - Curriculum Map


We started the year off by learning about our class animal. First we found information about them and sorted facts into true and false.  Then we did some art work to brighten up our new classrooms.  Here are some examples.

We were so excited to have Mr Rich come in to teach us yoga this week. We learned different postures such as the tree, mouse and cobra. Afterwards, the children explained that they felt more relaxed, full of energy and happy.  We discussed how yoga is not only great exercise For our bodies but also wonderful for keeping our minds healthy too.  The children cannot wait to teach their families.

These will be useful so that you are able to understand the methods your child uses, which may be different to the methods you use, so that you can best support them. Please ask your child which method they use as it will differ for each child. The key is that they are comfortable and secure in the method they use.
