Autumn Term 1

 

Our topic for Autumn Term 1 was 'all about me'. We talked about how we have grown and changed using the book 'When I was a Baby' as a starting point. We especially enjoyed trying to guess who was who from our baby photographs! We labelled the parts of the body, using the correct words (have a go for yourself with the interactive activity below). We learned about our five senses, reinforcing this in our forest school activities. In art, we learned about self portraits and techniques for drawing them accurately. We looked at how famous artists such as Warhol and Picasso have created portraits and, in particular, their use of colour. We created our own 'moody' blue pictures! In DT, we enjoyed talking about healthy choices and making and evaluating fruit salads.
