Foundation 2

Foundation 2 Curriculum overview Autumn 2

 

 

Our first topic this half term will be ‘Autumn’ but within this we also look at the other three seasons. We will link to seasons around the world and how they differ from ours. We will be going for walks to Ashton park and looking closely at the environment we live in. We will be spending time looking at the changes that are taking place in the seasons and why this is happening. We will have our very own ‘treehouse’ in the school role play for the children top explore, use their imagination and investigate. In the outdoor classroom children will be using our ‘curiosity cuboid’ to discover things linked to this topic. 

 

There will be links to bonfire night, Diwali and Thanksgiving and a range of activities will be set up to teach children about why some people celebrate these special occasions. 

 

We will be learning about some of the animals that live in our world especially linked to parks, forests and woods. In particular, will be looking at hibernation, habitats and nocturnal animals. 

 

Again there will be a big focus on communication and language – specifically speaking and listening. 

 

Most importantly, we ensure the children continue to develop their school routine, are making friends and are happy and settled in school. 

 

Every week we will cover specific objectives and areas of learning for maths, literacy, phonics, science, RE, music, art and design etc. Miss Cotterell and Miss Daltrey will keep you updated weekly via the VLE with specific details of what we have been focusing on in our classroom so that you know what you can work on with your child at home.

Foundation 2 Curriculum

 

Our first topic this term will be ‘Super me and Super you’. During this topic, the children will be discussing families and getting to know each other. They will talk about their hobbies, favourite food, pets and a range of other things about themselves. The role play area will be set up as a home and children’s play will reinforce familiar routines at home and interaction with others. We will also set up a role play ‘school’ for the children to explore and develop what we have been learning in class. There will be a big focus on communication and language – specifically speaking and listening.

 

We will also focus on trying to make the children as independent as possible: undressing, putting on P.E. kit, shoes, coats etc. We encourage children to ask for help when they need it.

 

Most importantly, we ensure the children know their school routine, are making friends and are generally happy and settled in school.
