Lessons Planning & Snacks

Lesson Planning

We operate an ‘in the moment’ planning schedule, taking into account
the children’s interests and progress.

Our half term topic is called ‘Growing‘, where the children will learn about how they have grown and we encourage photographs of them as babies as well as a current photograph to allow us to share these during discussions. We will also start to think about how plants and animals grow, to include the lifecycle of a butterfly, with currently some very small caterpillars to watch during the different stages as well as opportunities to plant seeds to watch them grow and be part of the role play garden centre we have created.

Some of the texts we will be looking at are:

We will also be introducing the children to factual books based around our themes.
