Our Project - Autumn 2022

his term our project question is "What can we find out about people from the past?"

We will be doing lots of activities to find out more about how we have changed - we will be looking at what we looked like as a baby and comparing it with what we look like now. We will also be looking at who lives in our house and who helps us each day.

We will be looking at old toys that we used to play with when we were younger as well as some of the toys that our teachers and parents used to play with when they were younger. We will be thinking about how toys have changed since then.

We will be learning about Florence Nightingale and some of the things that she did in the past, that help us today. We will learn how we can help to keep ourselves healthy, maintain a healthy environment and good personal hygiene. Routines for handwashing, toothbrushing, some basic food hygiene and keeping our areas tidy are some of the things that we will be focussing on. You may want to encourage your child to take more of a respnsibility for tidying their things at home, such as hanging up their own coat, putting their school bag away, or putting their toys back into a toybox when they are finished with them.

 

We will be continuing to use the Read, Write, Inc. scheme to improve our literacy skills and will engage in Funky Fingers activities to develop our fine motor skills. We will also practie daily maths lessons each morning.

You can help your child by:

Sharing books regularly

Playing counting games

Singing songs

Practicing recognising and writing names

Practicing healthy routines at home such as; washing hands tidying away toys when they are finished with, etc.
