Understanding the World

Autumn Term 2021

We acted out the story of Jesus’ birth.

We learnt the nursery rhyme ‘Down in the Jungle’ then used an interactive computer based program to drag their chosen jungle animal onto the background. They talked about the animals, the sounds that they make and they chose actions.

We made Diya lamps and Rangoli patterns to celebrate Diwali, the festival of light.

We went on an Autumn walk, collecting signs of autumn and marking off what we could see on our chart. We then used what we collected to make beautiful Autumn pictures.

We had lots of fun learning about our body. We drew around our friends then labelled different parts of the body,

We had lots of fun learning about road safety. We acted out a scene with the small world people and our road mat, showing how to cross the road safely.

As part of our Animals topic, we have had lots of special visitors in school…

We went for a walk around our school grounds to explore our senses. We then recorded what we could see, hear, smell, taste and touch.
