Our Topics

In Robins, all of our planning is child led. This means all topics are based on the children's interests. This is the starting point for all topics and learning. In Autumn term, our topics have been 'Superheroes' and 'Winter Wonderland.' All topics in Robins have a strong focus on language; building in rich opportunities for language development and conversation. This in turn, helps to promote confidence whilst creating opportunities to support Speech and Language therapy targets. 


Autumn Topics



Within the topic of Superheroes, the children have created characters, written their own comic strip and illustrated it! To start with, we read the story 'Supertato- Veggies Assemble' which helped to give us some ideas for our writing. The children then worked collaboratively to create the characters and then wrote their own individual comic strips. We had a lot of conversations about characters, their names, characteristics and whether they were good guys or bad guys! The children had to think about what other characters they would like to introduce to the story, how the characters would interact and what happened in the story. This was a great start to our year in Robins; the children were very proud of their learning and what they had created by the end of the topic


Winter Wonderland

'Winter Wonderland' is our current topic, which will take us up to the Christmas holidays. We are currently reading 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe' by C. S. Lewis. We are studying the setting and characters carefully, and have completed some pre-teaching about Seasons. We have some exciting learning planned..... check back here soon to see what we have been up to!
