Our Autumn Topic

It's Good To Be Me Image.jpg

It's Good To Be Me

Our topic for Autumn 1 is the 'It's Good To Be Me'.  This topic is great for helping us continue to get to know the children. We will be thinking about our immediate families and communities. We will be celebrating our differences and exploring how unique we are. We will provide lots of hands on experiences to investigate the five senses of touch, sight, hearing, taste and smell.

We will be looking at what a self portrait is. The children will have the opportunity to create their own self portrait which we will display in the classroom.

We will observe how the world changes around us. We will look at changes in the environment around us, considering changes such as leaves on the trees and the hours of daylight getting shorter.


We will be looking at a unit called ‘Me!’ which links with our 'It's Good To Be Me!' topic. The children will listen and responding to different styles of music. They will sing along with nursery rhymes and action songs. They will improvise leading to playing classroom instruments and share and perform the learning that has taken place.

PSED (Personal, Social and Emotional Development)

Kitemark Assured PSHE and SMSC e-Learning | 1decision

Children will take part in weekly PSED sessions. We use a scheme called 1decision where different emotions are explored through using friendly 'dilemma drops' who are different coloured raindrops that come to life in stories. Through these stories and through giving children scenarios to discuss we can help the children to settle in to school. The scheme allows us to adapt our planning to meet the children's needs and we will look at topics that are relevant to the children. You can click the link below to meet the Dilemma Drops. We will also be looking at School Rules and the children will contribute towards making a class charter.

Forest School 

We will begin our Forest School sessions. Willow Class on a Thursday and Oak Class on a Monday. Please send your child to school in their Forest School kit on this day.
