AsSalamuAlaykum all, Ustadh Khan and the Reception team are happy to welcome all the parents and children to Autumn 2.

 

This term, the topic will be ‘Making Good Choices’. The topic will cover all seven areas of learning required in the EYFS curriculum: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Reading and Writing, Expressive Arts and Design, Mathematics and Understanding of the World.

 

 

The core book for this term will be ‘Naughty Bus’ by jan oke. 

 

The book is all about a bus who is struggling to make good choices as he navigates through London’s busy streets.

 

Children will interact with the book through games relating to the story, making cardboard models of and learning the names of different forms of transport.. They will use the experiences of the Naughty Bus to talk about their own feelings about making good choices in reception, and how they can make everyone feel welcomed and included in school.

 

 The children will have access to a variety of fiction and nonfiction books which will allow them to engage in further conversations about making good choices, and of course, about transport.
