Autumn 2

Regent Farm Respects

Light and Dark

In this topic children are invited to use their senses to investigate light and dark, night and day.

As the dark nights draw in and the run up to winter celebrations gets closer, we are investigating the similarities and differences between light and dark. The children will use their imagination to visit worlds of fantasy. Learning to retell the story of the week in their own way, forms a big part of the half term. We use imaginative play to transport ourselves to the fictional worlds that are created through our key texts. We get a unique chance to stargaze and experience the magic of the night sky when the mobile planetarium visits school. 

Our Nativity adds music and performance to the curriculum and the addition of a mischievous gnome helps us focus on the real meaning of Christmas.
