Our topic this term is "Why do you love me so much?"

Guess how much I love you... What is special about me? How do we show that we care? In this project, we’ll learn about love, families and how people are the same and different.

First, we’ll talk to a parent with a baby and ask lots of questions. We’ll pose for photographs and recognise ourselves, our names and our friends from a photograph display. Mirror, mirror on the wall... We’ll look at our reflections and talk about what we can see. In our cosy home corner, we’ll care for dolls and teddies. We’ll enjoy sharing books about love, feelings and families. Outside, we’ll practise following instructions and think about how our brilliant bodies move. We’ll create a topic scrapbook full of lovely writing and photographs; and reflect on our experiences. Using our mathematical skills, we’ll measure and compare our hands, feet and heights. We’ll count candles and think about why we celebrate birthdays. Getting creative, we’ll make amazing artwork of people we love. We’ll make delicious foods to share and draw pictures of ourselves with our families.

Help your child prepare for their project:

We’re all special! Why not help your child to take photographs of family members and friends, to create a fantastic photo album? You could also visit the local library to share picture books about families and feelings. Alternatively, make a family collage with images of all of your family members’ favourite things.
