What topics will be covered in Panda class?
This term, our topic is “Why do squirrels hide their nuts?” We will explore this question through the seasonal changes in the natural world during autumn and winter. We will taste autumnal foods and explore the woodland environment. We will look at natural objects such as leaves, acorns, pinecones and conkers. We will be using the book ‘Leaf Man’ by Lois Ehlert to help expand our understanding of the topic. We bring this book to life in creative ways such as woodland walks, making our own leaf man and learning to count using natural materials.
In term 2, our topic will be “What’s that sound?” We will be exploring the exciting sounds that come from the night’s sky during this season, such as bonfire night, Diwali and Christmas! We will be looking at other types of celebrations such as birthdays and weddings. There will be lots of role-play, singing, and music-making.
