Autumn 2 - Celebrations and Friendships
This half term out topic is Celebrations. We will be learning all about Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day, Diwali, Birthdays, Hanukkah and Christmas. What an action packed few weeks it will be! To support this we will be reading "My World, Your World", "Kipper's Birthday" and "Little Robin Red Vest" as well as practising songs for our Nativity performance.
My World, Your World
We read "My World, Your World" by Melanie Walsh and had a circle time about our similarities and differences. We talked about how we each celebrate special times with our families and enjoyed writing celebration cards.
We loved reading "Kipper's Birthday" and enjoyed writing our own birthday party invitations to friends afterwards. We had lots of fun mark-making in the birthday sensory tray too!
Little Robin Red Vest
We read "Little Robin Red Vest" and talked about the good choices Little Robin made in the book. The kind character in this story inspired us to create robin-themed Christmas cards and calendars for our grown-ups.
