Welcome to Squirrels!

Autumn 2017


During the Autumn Term we will be looking at 4 different topics:

All About Me, Houses & Homes, Going to the Supermarket and Preparing to Celebrate.


We will be going on 2 trips this term.


  • A visit to Evington Village to look at different styles of houses and buildings
  • A visit to a Tesco supermarket so that the children can experience buying different food.
  • A visit to Leicester city centre to see the Christmas decorations.


Please note our P.E day this term is on a Thursday – please make sure your child has their P.E kit in school on this day.


Our Cookery day is on a Wednesday this term where your child will have opportunities to make a variety of foods and try new foods.


Please don’t forget to write in your Child’s home school diary if you want to communicate anything with us.

IPC Topics: All about Me


In Squirrels class, we started by learning about ourselves. We created self-portraits using different media and materials. We focused on identifying the facial features and naming them. We then moved on to identifying our main body parts and we had opportunities to label our body parts using (Picture Exchange Communication system) PECs cards.

IPC Topic: Houses and Homes


In Squirrels class, we focused on different houses in our community. We had an opportunity of visiting houses around Evington community. In class, pupils were encouraged to identify the key features of a house inside and outside.


The topic was linked to the story ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and gave pupils an opportunity of creating their own houses using (straws/rocks/wood).
