The topic for the first half of the term will be TRANSPORTATION. Transportation is an important part of everyday life and as such is a topic many children are interested in and about which they learn so much. This natural interest in transportation is something children experience in their lives and the many activities in which they will engage will bring life to this theme. They will learn about what different vehicles are for and how they work, together with important concepts such as safety when travelling in a vehicle or walking. Games, crafts and role-play activities will also help reinforce important information.
The children will be given many opportunities that include playing with all types of transportation items such as cars, buses, aeroplanes, trains, diggers, rockets and role-playing various journeys. Science-based lessons will teach them about what make a vehicle move and different patterns/tracks made by vehicles.
A trip to the Greenwich Fire Station is planned.
