What is Happening in Owls this Autumn Term
Our theme in Owls class this term is ‘Happy and Healthy’. As we settle into school we will be learning about our likes and dislikes and those of our friends. We have already started to enjoy sharing the special objects that the children have bought in from home. We will also be thinking about healthy lifestyles and food. We will be learning what makes us happy and exploring different emotions and how we cope with them. We will be discovering both our indoor and outdoor environments and how we work independently within these environments e.g. How does a good learner use the creative area? They wear an apron; they collect the things they need to make their creation; they try their best with their work and talk about what they are making; they tidy their equipment away when they have finished including their apron. The children will be practising their ‘learning skills’ like the ones above, in all the different areas of our indoor and outdoor classroom. The children have started learning their letter sounds and how to use these to read and write. We will also start to explore the some mathematical concepts such as counting, sorting, size, shape etc. As the term moves on we will be learning about autumn and the characteristics of this season. After half term we will move onto thinking about celebrations.
