Week Beginning 26th Sept

This coming week our learning will focus on the Big Question in Learning Block 2; Are all homes the same as yours?

The children will explore a variety of homes from around the world, supporting International Mindedness. They will learn new knowledge about the names of these buildings as well as what they are made from. The children will practice skills in building some of these homes using different materials including; ice cubes, clay, cardboard and sticks. They will practice their communication skills in a team building activity where they will be given a big space and lots of materials to work together in building their very own home.

This week you can make links to their learning at home by watching this (quite retro) Sesame Street song about how different homes can be!


This week the children continue their Personal Quality focus on Communication. We will use the book Two Shy Pandas to support our understanding of what good communication looks like. The Panda’s show us the problems that can happen if we do not communicate well. They also show us how good speaking, listening and looking skills can help us to make friends.
