Hurray! It’s that time of year when we love to celebrate. Children have a range of experiences and family traditions to share when it comes to birthdays and Christmas, with varying levels of knowledge about weddings and Bonfire Night. We also want to introduce and teach the children about a festival from a different culture (Diwali) and a local celebration (carnival). We will include a wide variety of activities, which will include parent participation and allow children to celebrate their learning with a special event towards the end of term.
ELG- Children talk about how they and others show feelings, talk about their own and other’s behaviour, and its consequences, and know that some behaviour is unacceptable. They work as part of a group or class, and understand and follow the rules. They adjust their behaviour to different situations and take changes of routine in their stride.
ELG- Children follow instructions involving several ideas or actions. They answer ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions about their experiences and in response to stories or events.
Moving and handling-
ELG- Children show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements. They move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space. They handle equipment and tools effectively, including pencils for writing.
