Autumn Term 2019
Cornerstones topic: 'Happiness'.
This project has a Health and Well-being focus and teaches children about the importance of happiness, health, well-being and celebrations.
At the heart of this project children will write explanation texts and develop additional skills of sentence writing, use of adjectives and writing to record ideas and experiences.
During this term, children will learn:
• How to understand and respect their own feelings and the feelings of others;
• How eating healthy and exercising regularly can affect your well being;
• How to keep safe, happy and well;
• About significant happy life events and how they are celebrated.

Role Play for Autumn Term - McDonald's
To begin our 'Happiness' topic, we discussed what makes us happy and different activities we enjoy. We thought about places which we enjoy going to and had a class vote to decide what our role play area should be.

Thanks to donations from McDonald's Penllergaer and the children's contributions, our role play looks fantastic for all to enjoy! We will use money to buy our food, discuss healthy alternatives and the importance of a balanced diet, and work as a team to cook and provide delicious food and service for our customers!
