Learners will be independent when dressing for FS. They begin to explore the outside world at their own pace and can verbally express what they like doing outside.
Gross and fine motor skills will have improved for all learners and their word count has increased due to being exposed to technical language and new experiences. Socially they will be able to share, participate in games and show respect to peers.
Emotionally they can begin to articulate their feelings and show resilience when faced with challenges. As environmentalists, Year 1 will learn about the different choices that people can make and how they affect others. Through classical fairy stories like ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ and ‘The three Little Pigs’ they will understand that they have choices to make about their personal behaviours and actions every day.
Games and activities will support the moral of each story e.g. being kind to others, happiness and consequences of actions. Stories will be told in a natural wooded area as a stimulus for imagination and immersion in the story.
At the end of the term they will enjoy a teddy bears picnic to celebrate the moral tales of long ago.
