We would like to welcome all the children back to Hardwick class after the summer break! We have an exciting autumn term ahead of us with new topic, Bright Lights, Big City. This will involve us exploring the countries that make up the United Kingdom, as well as a local area. We will have lots of fun using our senses to find out about the features of different places. As well as this, we will be exploring the sights, sounds and smells of our capital city of London, working together to choose and create a display of famous a London landmark.
As a class, we will go back in time to explore the Great Fire of London, delving into a sensory story about the event. Learning about the Queen Elizabeth ll, we will role-play a royal tea party.
The children will also explore how other capital cities are different, bringing back animals from around the world to take in the sights of London before introducing them to their forever home at London Zoo.
The development of the children’s physical and communication skills is an ongoing thread through the many daily activities. Each morning we have mixed task series programmes across the Warwick, Durham, Hardwick and Edinburgh classes, allowing flexibility regarding the most appropriate group for each pupil every day.
New termly targets are on the way and we hope you find these an encouraging reflection of your child’s next steps. As always, please don’t hesitate to get in touch about anything at all.
