Year R Projects for Term 2

Exploring Autumn

In the Exploring Autumn project, your child will go on a woodland walk to learn about the seasonal changes that happen in autumn. They will learn about birds and animals that live in the woods and how they survive as the weather gets colder. They will take part in practical and creative activities that will support them to learn about autumn.

Supporting your child at home

  • Go on a walk around your local area and talk about what happens to trees and plants during autumn. Take some pictures to share at school.
  • Collect leaves, seeds, nuts and berries to add to an autumn collection.
  • Make some bird food to feed the birds as the weather gets colder.

 

Once Upon a Time

In the Once Upon a Time project, your child will be introduced to the wonderful world of stories. They will listen to a range of traditional tales and have the chance to act out the stories in their play. They will also listen to alternative contemporary stories to see different viewpoints from the characters. They will use the stories to think about how life has changed from when the stories were written. They will also make up their own stories and make masks, props and puppets to act out their stories.

Supporting your child at home

  • Read traditional stories and fairy tales to your child.
  • Visit your local library and choose picture books to share.
  • Talk about the characters in stories and whether they like or dislike them.
  • Talk about how the characters in stories behave and what they could do differently.
