Welcome to Early Years.
During the Spring Term our Talk for Writing topic is ‘The Little Red Hen.’ The children will learn and retell the story, make story maps, sequence the text, then make up their own version of the text. The children will observe eggs in an incubator and see the eggs hatch. This will lead into some non-fiction work on labelling and life cycles.
In the second half term our topic will be ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt.’ They will investigate different materials, write explanations and write letters to the bear.
We will also learn about Shrove Tuesday, Easter and the Chinese New Year at the relevant dates throughout the term.
Please see our Medium Term Planning (a link is attached) which will show our areas of learning in much greater depth. This will allow you to support your child and talk with them about what they have been learning. Please continue to read regularly with your child and to support them with their Word Walls and Numicon. There are also links to some useful websites for the children to use for their own research and enjoyment.
