Autumn 1 2016 “What Makes Me Special?”

smiley-faceWelcome to Reception,the children have settled very well in their first week- enjoying taking part in the phonics, maths and literacy lessons , meeting their teachers and making new friends. This half term we will be basing our learning on the “Big Question” -“What Makes me Special ?”.
The children have brought a topic web home , which outlines some of the areas we will be looking at.
We will be reading the big books “How Are You Feeling Today?”,”Totally Wonderful Miss Plumberry”, “You Choose” and “Wanda’s Space Party”. The children will have lots of opportunities to explore and develop their emotional awareness- talking about different feelings and behaviours and also looking at their similarities and differences. We will be painting self portaits and pictures of the things they like to do and we will also have a “Bring your favourite thing to school day”- no pets please!
