*Our Christian Value for the term*
Our Christian Value this term is ‘Respect.’
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*
Autumn Term 2
This term our topic is entitled 'Bright Lights, Dark Nights'.
Welcome to the Autumn 2 term, which is always a very busy but very exciting term with lots of wonderful things going on! As the title of our topic suggests, we will be focusing on how the days are getting shorter and the nights longer, but we hope to show how this is a wonderful time of year to be celebrating festivals of light now that we have such long, dark nights. We will be learning about Bonfire Night, Diwali, Hanukkah and, of course, Christmas. We will be looking at autumn changes, particularly when we go for an autumn walk, as well as thinking about how we are starting to wear different clothes now that the days are getting colder.
As it's now well into the season of autumn and animals are beginning to settle down for their winter sleep, we will be learning all about the animals that hibernate as well as animals which are nocturnal. This also ties in with our Talk for Writing book this term, The Sleepy Hedgehog. Maybe at home you would like to prepare a winter bed for our important garden animal visitors, including insects such as bees which need a warm, dry, quiet home for the winter.
We will be starting our PE lessons this term so make sure you all have your PE kits of white T-shirt and black shorts in school at all times. We will be doing some creative dancing so can't wait to see all your beautiful moves!
There are lots of important themes and events going on this term - we will be talking about Remembrance Day, Anti-Bullying week (including Odd Socks Day), Children in Need, World Hello Day and Pantosaurus, when we learn about how some secrets are not safe to keep.
Later on in the term, we will be performing our Christmas play, going to the Pantomime, wearing Christmas jumpers on Christmas jumper day, eating Christmas dinner, making Christmas cards and crafts and celebrating Christmas with our carol service in church. Phew, it's going to be busy, busy, busy but utterly amazing and exciting too. We can't wait to get started!
