Our topic for Autumn 1 is… “Bear Necessities”
To start our first term together, our topic is “Bear Necessities”. We will be learning all about bears such as different types of bears, what they look like, where they live and what they like to eat. Each week we will read a different story to teach us all about bears such as “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”, “Peace at Last”, “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” and more!
We are going to spend lots of time getting to know each other, making friends and learning new routines. Some of our creative activities this half-term will include making bear masks, using cotton wool to make a polar bear and using forks to print bear faces. Learning activities this term will also include taking part in Tumble Tots, exploring textures, learning some nursery rhymes and colour names. For our WOW Moment, we will be having our own Teddy Bears Picnic!
