Autumn 2 in Willow
Welcome back! We hope that you all had a fantastic half term. May we take this opportunity to inform you of our plans for this half term. In the second half of the Autumn term we will be learning about 'Festivals and Celebrations'. Each week will have a specific focus which you can see in the table below. We hope this will give you an opportunity to share and talk about what your child is doing at school.
Throughout the half term your child will engage in a range of activities. In Diwali they will retell the story of Rama and Sita, make a salt dough diva and create some Barfi sweets. During our week on Fireworks the children will experience poetry and science experiments. As part of our focus on Birthdays the children will help to further develop our role play area, make cards and party invitations. During our week on Hanukkah the children will make a menorah and there will be a focus on the alphabet. Throughout our focus on Advent and Christmas the children will make lists, Christmas cards, gift wrapping and tree decorations. They will also be developing the role play area in Santa's workshop. Throughout the half term we are also hoping to give the children the opportunity to do some sewing as well as practice their Christmas performance. It is through these activities we are hoping to develop many of the the children's early knowledge, understanding and skills.
