EYFS Derwent and Ennerdale
Teaching and learning in Derwent and Ennerdale class – Autumn Term 2
We loved having a surprise visit from Zoo Lab this half term. We saw lots of animals and had the chance to hold or stroke lots of them. We learnt about where the animals live and what they like to eat. We all had our favourite animals.

This half term we will be learning about aliens and space. We will have a spaceship crash landing in our classroom and we will be investigating where it has come from and who came with the space ship. We will be reading the story Aliens love underpants and we will be making our own underpants for the aliens. To help the aliens get home we will be investigating magnetic materials and making a list of the magnetic objects we find.
We will be hunting for Aliens and collecting objects from outside as we hunt. We will then be making our own pictures of what we think the aliens look like using these objects.
In maths we will be continuing to recognise and write numbers. We will be writing numbers 1-9 and we will be working up to recognising and ordering 1-20. We will be sorting, naming and describing 2D shapes as well as ordering and comparing the size, weight and capacity of up to 3 items.
At the end of the half term will be getting ready for Christmas, learning about the first Christmas, writing letters to Santa and making Christmas crafts. We will also be spending lots of time practising our Christmas Play which this year is called The Bossy King.
