Overview of Autumn Term 2 2020


This page provides an overview of some of the fun things we will be doing over the course of this half term.   Our theme for this half term is colour as we explore primary colours and see what happens when colours mix.  We will also be working on settling in.

It has been a very strange year for the children due to Covid 19!!  We will continue using our large outside space and the marquee as well as our large room in order to maintain social distancing.  The children love being outside and our activities are organised to encompass all areas of the EYFS through play.  Some activities may change or be adapted to comply with Government guidelines. 

Theme is Autumn, change.
