Our Learning


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.


Here are some of the things we have been doing:


Our big question...

What makes me happy?

We will be exploring all of the things that make us happy! We will talk about what makes us happy and when we feel other emotions too. We will be looking at different celebrations, such as Diwali, birthdays and Christmas. 


The children will be exploring this big question through all areas of our curriculum. Here are some of our exciting activities:


Reading stories about celebrations- Which story is your favourite? 







We will be talking about what makes us happy- when are you happy?




We will be making birthday cards and invitations- how old will you be on your birthday?








The Way The Truth and The Life




In RE we will be exploring how important November is to remember those we have lost. We will talk about remembrance and why it is important. We will also be taking about Saints and why they are important to God. We will also be exploring the Christmas story and the true reason that we celebrate Christmas. 







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 story time books will include: 









Nursery Rhymes


We sing nursery rhymes and songs 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 and songs we will be learning this half term:



Down in the jungle

Sleeping Bunnies


We will be singing lots of number songs and learning to count past 10. We will also be recognising the numbers to 10 and counting objects to match the numbers that we can read- we will be practising writing some of them too.
