In FS1 we learn through play and love to explore our learning environment both inside and outside. We are creative and learn together with our friends in imaginative ways.
Have a look at some of the things we have been doing:
We will be learning all about the different colours in our world.
The children will be exploring this big question through all areas of our curriculum. Here are some of our exciting activities:
Food tasting- What colour food is your favourite?
Colour mixing- How do you make colours lighter or darker?
Making our own colourful rain sticks- What colours will you choose?
In RE we will be learning about Mary and Joseph and their love for Jesus. We will also be thinking our friendship with Jesus and the people who are special to us, thinking about how we can show them kindness. We will be discovering the story of the Good Samaritan and how we can be Good Samaritans to others. During our collective worship sessions we will be joining in with simple prayers and learning some hymns.
We love to share stories in FS1 and the children enjoy choosing their own books and spending time in our reading den. We read stories together every day as a class and the children also take home a book to share with their families. This half term our books will include:
Brown bear brown bear what do you see?, Mouse paint, The day the crayons quit, The mixed up Chameleon and Elmer.
We sing nursery rhymes every day in FS1 and the children all have their favourite rhyme! We always join in with different actions and sometimes even add in our own verses. Here are some of the rhymes we will be learning this half term:
We will be learning to select up to 5 objects when asked, compare amounts using the language of more, lots and few. We will be sorting objects based on their colour, size and shape.
