In the autumn term, our second topic is ‘Why do Squirrels hide their nuts?’ We will be learning about the changing of the seasons; why leaves change colour and fall off trees. We will think about the weather in autumn and clothes we need to wear. Animals that we see in autumn and how they get ready for hibernation will also feature.
In English lessons our focus story will be ‘Squirrel’s Busy Day’. However, we will listen to other stories, rhymes and songs on a daily basis. We will use Letters and Sounds Phase 1 with the aim of orally blending cvc words, when ready.
In Maths lessons, we will continue with our focus of number, counting and, if at the developmental stage, adding.
We will learn more shapes and their features, and use simple money for buying food in our role play Supermarket. For some, money will be applied to number work too.
