Term 1

Why do squirrels hide their nuts?


Into the woods we go! Why do squirrels hide their nuts? Why do hedgehogs hibernate? It’s time to explore the seasonal changes in the natural world during autumn and winter.

This half term, we’ll explore our school woodland to observe and experience the enchanting autumnal environment, collecting autumn treasures as we crunch through piles of fallen leaves.

We’ll learn about woodland animals and migration through movement and discuss the features that allow animals to survive through winter.


Term 1


We are starting Term 1 exploring

'Do you want to be friends?'


We are going to start off this term getting to know the children in our new classes and the adults we will be learning with this year. 

During Busy Time we will be playing lots of games and activities with each other, finding out our shared interests and showing off our skills. 


Below is our termly topic map as well as our topic specific vocabulary. 

Mild chilli words are words that your children should know the meaning of and use them in everyday conversation.

Hot chilli words are words that your children may have heard but perhaps don't yet fully understand their meaning. They are words that would be in an adults everyday vocabulary.

Spicy chilli words are very topic specific and may require discrete teaching. It is our aim that your child will be able to use them correctly and in context by the end of the topic.
