Bear Class Plans

Autumn Term- Our focus in the Autumn term is to help children to settle into their new learning environment and to feel happy, safe and secure. We will find out about people who help us in school and the wider community. We will observe changes that take place during Autumn and go for a local walk to see what is in our local area. We will perform a Christmas Nativity play and learn how Christmas is celebrated.
Spring Term- We will explore changes that take place outdoors in Winter and find out what happens when water freezes and melts. We will learn about light and dark and how things work through a range of activities.  This half term we will be reading The Gingerbread Man and making our own gingerbread.
Summer Term- We will go on a trip to Bluebell Dairy Farm and learn all about farm animals. We will grow fruit and vegetables in our mini garden. We will explore about transport and different ways we can travel.
