What we are learning in the autumn term:
Our Topic this term is: Our School, Our Community
My House is Your House
We will continue to:
During the autumn term Yellow Class will be exploring our topic: Our School, Our community by looking at familiar place in and around our school and the local community. We will make links to the story; My House is Your House, by Carmen Tafolla which has a lovely inclusive and welcoming approach to families and communities.
This will link to cross curricular work on our school, houses, people and our community with a whole class art project on building a house out of simple printing and mark making, alongside some interesting cookery ideas and lots of identifying locations using symbols and photographs.
We will try to get out and see some places in the local communities such shops, the local church and even the fire station! Of course there will be a bit of work on Halloween and Fireworks Night too.
