Our Topic for Spring A
Will you read me a story?
Welcome to the magical world of fairy tales! Was the Big Bad Wolf really so bad? How many bowls of porridge did Goldilocks eat? Let’s find out more about our favourite stories, and discover some new ones.
This half term, we’ll visit a libray and watch a pantomime to see the characters come to life! We’ll play imaginatively with a model castle and small world characters. We’ll look at different character types, and decide whether our favourite characters are ‘goodies’ or ‘baddies’! Using different materials and shapes, we’ll build castles and bridges. We’ll read lots of stories and look at the ingredients that go into a fantastic fairy tale. We’ll be brave explorers and hunt for missing items from fairy tales. Contemporary versions of fairy tales will inspire us to write stories, and we’ll create story maps to retell familiar tales. We’ll also test the right materials to make houses for the Three Little Pigs.
Help your child prepare for their project
Reading fairy tales can sweep us away into a fantastical world. Why not visit your local library together to read lots of different versions? You could also watch children’s films on this theme and discuss the different types of characters. Alternatively, you could use toys to retell favourite fairy tales.
Home Learning and Homework
The children all have school reading books and/or Ditty sheets. EYFS homework is for your child to read regularly and for this to be recorded in the reading diary.
We use an online learning journey in school called Tapestry. This can also be used at home to share any photos or any activities you have done. If you have not yet received an email invitation to join Tapestry please tell one of the EYFS team.
The children will take part in a PE session every Thursday with Mr Howsam our sports coach. The children are to come into school wearing their PE kit each Thursday.
On Wednesday's we will be spending more time in our school woods doing forest school activities. Please can children wear old clothes to school every Wednesday, such as jogging bottoms, t-shirt, jumper. If you have not yet done so please bring some named wellies to be kept in school.
We take full advantange of our outdoor classroom, woods and fields around school, so please ensure children have their coats each day incase of poor weather.
