Context for learning

What is special about me? How do we show that we care? In this topic, we’ll learn about love, families and how people are the same and different. First, we’ll look at babies and ask lots of questions. We’ll pose for photographs and recognise ourselves, our names and our friends from a photograph display. We’ll look at our reflections and talk about what we can see. In our cosy home corner, we’ll care for dolls and teddies. We’ll enjoy sharing books about love, feelings and families. Outside, we’ll practise following instructions and think about how our brilliant bodies move. We’ll create ‘All about me’ scrapbooks full of lovely writing and photographs. Using our mathematical skills, we’ll measure and compare our hands, feet and heights. We’ll count candles and think about why we celebrate birthdays. Getting creative, we’ll make amazing artwork of people we love. We’ll make delicious foods to share and draw pictures of ourselves with our families.

    Christian Values  

 

                                                                      

 

Our school Christian Value for this term is Thankfulness

We will look at why being thankful is important and discuss what the children were thankful for in their lives.  Christians believe that God loves and cares for them in many different ways in all aspects of their life. Christians know that their response to this provision should be one of thankfulness and praise.

Thessalonians 5:18 Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Psalm 107:1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!

Ephesians 5:20Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

What do we do in school in response to thankfulness?

 

  • We show our appreciation for pupil’s achievements by giving praise, stickers, Dojo awards and certificates to them.
  • We know that having food, clothes and lovely things is a blessing and not a right.
  • We show our thankfulness through our support to charities that help others who are not as fortunate as ourselves.
  • We give thanks to God through our hymns and our prayers.
  • We learn to be thankful for the skills of others and the ways in which they enrich our lives.
  • We say thank you to each other and know that saying thank you is important and polite.

Weekly Updates

 

W/C - 7/9/20

This week we have had fun in our outdoor area. We have played with the bikes and scooters, played football, built train tracks and made food in our outdoor kitchen.  We have explored our role play area inside, built towers with wooden bricks, played with toy horses and investigated our discovery area.  We have enjoyed mark making and counting and joined in with lots of story time and songs.
