Overview of Autumn Term 2

Overview Autumn Term 2 2019

Theme:  Autumn and Change

Week 1-  w/c 4th November  – Letter of the week is ‘s’ 

It will be all things sparkly  this week as we make rockets and sparkly pictures for Bonfire Night.  We will get out our dark den with torches and lights where we can explore light and dark.   To fit in with our letter ‘s’ we will draw spiral patterns on snails and make patterns on snakes.  Our Green Bod children will have circletimes where we can talk about what we may have been up to during our half term holidays. 

Week 2 – w/c 11th November – Letter of the week is ‘a’

A very busy week this week as we not only look at the letter ‘a’ but also begin making our mini Christmas cakes.  We will bake every day with the children to make our lovely cakes and once decorated we sell them to raise money for our end of term trip!  Our role play kitchen will be stocked with playdo and baking equipment where we can extend our learning by weighing, measuring and making lots of different shaped cakes!!!  On Monday we will be making poppies for Remembrance Day.


Week 3 – w/c 18th November – Letter of the week is ‘t’

Its trains, transport and tickets this week as we look at the letter ‘t’.  We will need to sell tickets to our friends, check timetables and make sure that the train is going where we need it to go – the shops, the beach or even the moon!!!!  

Small Green Bod activity – Our Green Bods will be practising their pencil control this week by carefully forming the letters of their names on cake tags 

Week 4  – w/c 25th November – Letter of the week is ‘p’

We will be making pig faces and exploring porridge and peas as we look at the letter ‘p’  We may even have the odd pirate or too popping up during the week!  We will be doing a spot of Scottish Dancing to celebrate St.Andrews Day and talking about why this is a special day to people in Scotland.  

Small Green Bod activity – We will be playing a maths game where we will need to think about counting 

Week 5 – w/c 2nd December – No letter of the week

Another busy week!  We will begin decorating our mini Christmas cakes and making them look really pretty ready to take home.  We will also be putting up our Christmas tree so we will be making some lovely decorations to festoon it with! 

Small Green Bod Activity – We will be thinking about what we would like Santa to bring us for Christmas and drawing him a picture ready to send to his elves!

Week 6 – w/c 9th December

Our role play will be a Santa’s Grotto this week with lots of presents to wrap and cards to write and post.  All of the children will be making their Christmas cards over the next two weeks to take home to give to someone they love.  We are hoping the weather is kind to us so we can go off on our post box walk to post Christmas cards home.  We will talk about what happens to our letters when they go into the box and then see if they arrive through our letter boxes at home!   Our Green Bod children will begin practising for their Nativity play next week.

Week 7 – w/c 16th December 

Our last week of term will be glitter, wrapping paper and fun!  Our Green Bod children will perform their Nativity Play on Monday which will be very exciting!    Our Last Day of Term in THURSDAY 19th.  We will hold our Christmas Party on Friday 20th December (more information to follow for our Pe-school family)

A Very Merry Christmas to Everyone and a Happy New Year to!
