Diwali Themed Week

Our First Topic of the year is 'Monsters & Beasts'


Within this cross curricular topic we will be reading a range of books including:

  • The colour monster
  • Go away big green monster
  • Monsters love underpants
  • There’s a monster in your book
  • The Smeds & The Smoos
  • Mad About Minibeasts
  • Twist & Hop to the Minibeast Bop

These books have lots of lovely cross curricular themes, for instance last week while reading the colour monster we thought about our feelings and emotions during emotional literacy sessions. This will continue throughout the year.

We will be learning about Minibeasts in Science and outdoor learning as well as seasonal changes (including linking to Halloween)
