Imaginative Learning Projects

Autumn 1 ~ Do you want to be friends?

A first project about friendship, being kind and working together.

As well as getting to know each other, we will be finding our way around school and meeting the people who work in our school. There will be stories to share at school and at home with Story Bear and some fact finding about real bears around the world.

We will be starting our first reading book, to build up a bank of keywords, and having lots of fun playing with sounds so that we can make our own words.

Counting games and practical activities to build number knowledge and vocabulary are already a key part of our day with the ‘Numberline Lane’ characters joining in.

Opportunities for investigative play and child initiated learning will be a central part of daily activities, inside and out.

We will be taking our Bear Hunt into Forest School soon, where all learners have the opportunity to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem, through hands-on learning experiences.
