Autumn Term One


During this term we are going to ourselves through the topic All About Me! We will be reading the book Handa's Surprise in order to explore what being a good friend is all about as well as comparing where we live (The UK) to where Handa lives (Africa). We will be learning the traditional tale, The Three Little Pigs through Talk 4 Writing strategies to encourage communication and language as this is a key area for the Early Years. We will start with our phonics programme, RWInc which we will do every day ensuring the children are exposed to correct pencil grips and letter formation. As well as this, we will practise countingsinging and exploring our new school environment.


I can't wait to get going, so I hope you feel the same!
