Our learning

Autumn 1 - I wonder what is special

Intent – Our intent with this learning is for children to have an understanding of themselves, their family and the community around them understanding that we are all different but equally important. 

Implementation – The children will share pictures of themselves and their families and talk about these. They will share their likes and dislikes and develop an understanding that we all like and dislike different things. We will look at houses in our community and how they are different. Elmer will be a focus books teaching us about emotions.  

Impact – Children will have will understand and accept that we are all individuals who are special. 

Why now? - Transition into school that will help children to make friends and accept each other.
