Autumn Term 2 – Topic ‘Light and Dark’

This term our topic is ‘Light and Dark’ this theme was born from the children’s interests in space, nature and animals. Throughout the term the class will go on a journey through space, learning about the moon and the stars at night. We will then venture into Mike’s Meadow to learn more about the animals that live there both in the day and at night. We will become scientists, investigating light sources. These themes will run alongside the religious festival of light ‘Diwali’ and how light is a prevalent theme in Christianity in the lead up to Christmas.

Our Vision Statement for EYFS at Batheaston Church School

At Batheaston Church School we endeavour to promote a love of learning; where interests and talents are nurtured and challenged, empathy is fostered and friendships formed. A child entering Apple Class will embark on a creative, engaging learning adventure. Our environment is rich in first-hand experiences with time given to dream, aspire and achieve. Independence is encouraged and risk-taking is celebrated within safe and secure surroundings.

As a team we are passionate about the education of young children. Activities planned provide a wide range of opportunities to enable children to play, work, collaborate, apply skills learnt, test ideas and narrate their inner imaginings. We aim to build children’s academic, social and emotional well-being so that they can thrive both within our walls and the world beyond.
