Welcome to Little Owls (FS2)

Autumn Term 2020

 We are so excited to welcome all of the new FS2 children into our amazing school. 

Starting school is a big change for everyone.

With this change comes a 'new hope' for all of the children. 

We hope that they will amaze, achieve and aspire.  

Communication and Language

This term we will be listening to lots of wonderful stories. 

We will be reading books based around colours and autumn.  Here are some of the books we will be focusing on:

The Colour Monster by Anna Llenas.

Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt. 

The Squirrels Who Squabbled by Rachel Bright.

Expressive Arts

Our artist of the term is

Andy Warhol.

 

Our composer of the term is 

Vivaldi. 

Vivaldi's The Four Seasons is a group of four violin concerti each of which gives musical expression to a season of the year. 

We will also be listening to music by Elvis Presley.

Come and listen to some music in our  Reflection corner. 

You can also reflect on how you feel. You could tell stories like Jesus did.
