*Our Christian Value for the term*

Our value for this term is Respect. Being respectful is one of the key ingredients to being the best person you can be.

 

“Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves.”

 

Respect is also one of our school rules (Ready, Respectful and Safe) and is a value we hold dear in school. The children learn to recognise respect in others, while also showing respect themselves.

 

“Respect other people's feelings. It might mean nothing to you, but it could mean everything to them.”  Roy T. Bennett.

 

They also learn the importance of showing respect to our belongings and to our environment. The children are developing their understanding of how we can respect our beautiful world and what we can further do as a school, as a Plastic Free School.

 

When it comes to climate change, “be the change you wish to be in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi.

 

 

*Our Learning for this term*

This term our topic is

CELEBRATIONS!

We will learn about the festival Diwali, listening to traditional music from India, trying Indian food and dressing up in traditional costumes to celebrate Diwali.  The children will have the chance through provision to make Rangoli patterns with rice, Henna patterns with felt tips and use jewels and glass beads to make Rangoli designs in the classroom too.

We will have a week themed around Pumpkins, investigating how plants grow and exploring what pumpkins feel like on the inside and out, through provision we will develop our fine motor skills using hammers to knock in special 'nails'.

Not to let any go to waste, we will make Pumpkin bird feeders to help the birds have full tummies over the winter months.  Alongside this we will plant Spring bulbs in our outdoor area to enjoy later in the year.

Continuing with our Autumn theme we are going to make Scarecrows taking inspiration from The Scarecrow's Wedding and then have a wedding celebration!!

This leads us all the way up to our Christmas celebrations!

 

Alongside all of this we have our new Outdoor Area to enjoy, we will enjoy building in the new builders yard, making sandcastles in the new sandpit and making our very own trim trails with the moveable planks and boxes.

 

We will share a range of favourite stories in our cosy reading area, this term our favourite books and rhymes we have chosen to share are

Come On Daisy!
