People Who Help Us
This term our topic is 'People Who Help Us'. We have solved our own crime scene mystery and had a visit from a real policeman! We also have been learning about how doctors and nurses help us; role playing in our doctor's surgery and having a visit from a nurse.
We have been learning about the fire service and building our own fire engines using junk modelling.

Last term our topic was 'Celebrations'. We had lots of fun learning about different celebrations and how different people celebrate in different ways.
We learned about fireworks; creating fireworks art, dances and writing fireworks words. We also learned about birthdays, following recipes to make birthday cakes! In the run up to Christmas we learned about the Christmas story and put on our own Nativity play for our parents and the rest of the children in the school.
All About Me
Our first topic at school was 'All About Me'. We talked about what makes us special and the different people in our families. Through books like 'Owl Babies' and 'This is Our House' we thought about our relationships with other children at school and our families. We explored the world around us using our senses and described what we experienced. We also started our phonics and Big Maths learning. Most importantly we had fun and made lots of new friends!
