Term Topics

The focus for Term 1 is based around the book Whatever Next by Jill Murphy.

This picture book explores imaginative adventure.  Baby bear is determined to fit in a trip to the moon before bath time.  Can he do it? Sure he can.


We will be focusing on the pictures throughout this book.  Children will develop their imagination whilst exploring the stars and the moon.  The children will learn about friendship and how to pack for a healthy picnic.  We will explore the sound of rain along with things that may or may not withstand getting wet, as it starts raining on baby bears adventure.


Things the children can bring in each week to help us explore this book together.
