Autumn 2

Welcome back after a lovely half-term break.

This half-term are topics are 'Long Ago' and 'Stories and Rhymes.'

During the Long ago topic we will learn about their history and how they have changed from when they were babies. They will learn about their family history and heritage and find out what life was like when their grandparents were children. They will learn about what it was like to go to school in the past and how everyday objects, such as clothes, toys and vehicles have changed.

Ideas to support your child at home:

*Look at photographs of the children as babies and discuss how they have grown and changed.
*Look at family photographs so the children can see family members when they were children.
*Talk about what your life was like when you were a child.

In the Stories and Rhyme project your child will be introduced to the wonderful world of stories and nursery rhymes. They will listen to and learn a range of traditional tales and nursery rhymes and work creatively to solve problems for the characters they meet.

Ideas to support your child at home:

* Share a wide range of stories and retell favourite stories using repeated phrases.
* Sing nursery rhymes and songs.
* Talk about favourite stories and story characters.

We will also be learning about Dwali , Hanukkah and sharing the Christmas story. We discuss the different festivals and how people celebrate them.
