 Celebrations!

 

Our class team Mrs Lynes, Mrs Barber and Mrs Tate welcome cannot wait to start celebrating! This half term we will be party, party, party! Our classroom has been transformed into a big Birthday Party. The children will be getting involved in party games, role playing party food, writing menu, place cards and invitations for our friends, as well as creating party bags and other decorations.

We will also be getting stuck into our class story 'Cinderella' - Where we will be focusing on the big celebration of their Palace Wedding. Children will be getting hands on, making our role play 'Palace' to support story telling, role playing and our story writing.

We will also be using lots of design skills this half term - making a huge junk model celebration cake to display in our learning areas, as well as using clay to make Diwali lamps, a number of craft materials to create fireworks and baking up some delicious party food!

Throughout our topic we will be heading to Pizza Express in St. Ives where we have the opportunity to make our own pizzas and hold a class party, to get ourselves immersed into celebrations!

Finally, we will be putting our historian heads on, delving into the past to find out about many festivals, celebrations around the world, comparing them to the present day!

Obviously we will be ending the term with CHRISTMAS CELEBRATIONS! Rehearsing our Nativity Play, in addition to writing Christmas lists, letters, making crafts and role playing with our friends.

We can`t wait to begin!!

 

Within class we follow the ‘Letter and Sounds’ phonics scheme, allowing all children to access and practise their sounds and become confident and competent readers. If you wish to find any more information on our current topics and curriculum please look at our topic web and class timetable.
