Our topic this term is ‘Traditional Tales’

During this topic, the children will be learning about different traditional tales, including:

Gingerbread Man

The Three Little Pigs

The little Red Hen

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

We will be looking at the language used in the stories, repeating key phrases from the story. We will be retelling the story, acting out different roles.

For the gingerbread man story we will make and decorate our own gingerbread.

We will make houses for the little pigs, using straw, sticks and bricks.

We will have a visit from a real life red hen and we will make our own bread and butter. We will act out being Goldilocks and  taste porridge.

We will finish this half term learning and celebrating Easter.

We will be asking Parents to help  make their children an Easter bonnet to take part in our Easter parade!

Information for Parents – Helping your Children at Home

Practicing reading and writing set 1 sounds, high frequency words and ‘tricky words’ will help your child. Please encourage children to explore books. They love ‘Bedtime stories’.  We now have a new reading scheme ‘Bug Club’. Parents are asked to read with their child and to sign and date reading diaries. Library books are changed each Friday so please ensure that you child’s books are in school everyday or their books cannot be changed.
