Finding Out About People and Communities

The children have been finding out how people from different communities celebrate special occasions including Bonfire Night, Diwali, birthdays and Christmas.

Knowing About The World

F1 and F2 have been developing their understanding of growth and change by finding out about Harvest and Autumn. They have observed changes to cress seeds that they have planted and they have investigated Harvest fruit and vegetables, talking about colour, shape, size, taste and texture. The children described changes to materials when making Harvest bread rolls. They have been on walks to see and describe the changes that happen during Autumn time.
