  Term 2- What a Feeling!

Take your passion
And make it happen
Pictures come alive
You can dance right through your life

In Term 2, we will explore the feeling of happiness and how we can spread joy to those around us.  We will read the amazing story of 'Anna Hibiscus' Song' where we will learn what Anna and her family do when they are happy.  To explore the story in depth, we will dance, we will sing, we will laugh and most of all, we will smile! Whilst reading our new 'Power of Reading' text, we will also go on an adventure to Africa to learn all about Anna's culture, her family and where she lives.

Stunning Start:

Buckle up your seatbelts and prepare for take off! We are going to Africa!

Can you hear the sounds of the drums and the birds tweeting in the trees? Can you smell the sweet spices floating through the air? How does the warm sunshine make you feel? Prepare to learn all about African traditions and culture as we dive into the life of Anna Hibiscus.

 

Fabulous Finish

Are you ready for a new music sensation?

Each reception class is going to be producing their very own song and music video to spread a little bit of extra joy! 

 

Term 1- What a Feeling!

Our very first topic as the children begin their journey to BIG school, is called 'What a Feeling!'

Can you feel it? Do you know that feeling in your tummy, bubbling up inside? What is it?

During this learning experience, we will explore our emotions by diving inside our tummies and our hearts to understand what we are feeling and why. 

Stunning Start:

Have you ever heard of a Worry Monster?

Worry Monsters help when your worries get too big, they help to gobble them up and make them go away. We are going to get creative and make our very own worry monsters.

Fabulous Finish:

Share your favourite things in a treasure box all about YOU!

What will you put inside your treasure box?

We will invite the children to put together a special box filled with all of their favourite things. We will then spend time talking and sharing our objects and photos together in our classes.
