*Our Christian Value for the term*
Friendship is an undisputed value in our society, with children often spending more time with their friends than with family.
Jesus tells stories of the heavenly banquet to which all are invited. The barriers between people are broken down in a loving community around God. Jesus had stern words to say to those who refused to recognise that all are included in this community of friendship.
Trust, feeling comfortable in each other’s company, being able to share joys and sorrows are all features of friendship and these are things of immense value. True friendship enables each person to grow and ensures that the unique individuality of each person is recognised. All this echoes the value placed by God on the preciousness of each person.
“Why did you do all this for me?' he asked. 'I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.'
*Our Learning for this term*
Autumn Term 1
We are learning each day as we step through the door.
What an amazing achievement for all the children who have been at home with their family for the past eighteen months. Well done Caterpillars.
We are busy recognising our names on the snack table and our pegs. We are busy getting to know each other and learning the names of our friends. We are becoming familiar with our daily routines. We are learning about our school rules of being Ready, Respectful and Safe and what those words mean. Sitting still and being ready to listen, respecting other people and objects by learning to share and take turns with toys. Learning how to be safe by keeping our hands and feet to ourselves, holding on when climbing outside and doing as we are asked by the adults who are teaching us.
We are going to be talking about our family and who takes care of us.
Our talk for Writing story is ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See?’
In phonics we will be developing our listening skills starting with sounds in the environment. What sounds can you here when you are out and about or at home?
We will be learning numbers through singing counting rhymes and counting on our fingers.
We will be learning about ourselves and all the amazing things that we already know and the skills we have learnt already at home, celebrating our achievements and taking our next steps in our learning journey. Come along and join the fun.
