This term we will be transported into the magical world of traditional tales. The children will explore a range of traditional tales, including stories from other cultures, to find out what makes a story become a traditional tale. We will be looking at the composition of stories, including how a writer develops the beginning, middle and end of a story, while developing our storytelling skills through role play. The children will also begin to develop their understanding of a character in a story and how their feelings change throughout the story. In Maths, we will learn that all numbers can be made up of smaller numbers as we explore part, part whole templates. We will also be investigating time, finding number pairs to make 10, exploring 3D shapes and making patterns.
The key books we will be reading this term are:
Hansel and Gretel
The Magic Porridge Pot
The Three Billy Goats Gruff
Jack and the Beanstalk
We're Going on an Egg Hunt!
We are also looking forward to learning how to stay healthy. We will be making porridge and choosing healthy toppings, growing plants like 'Jack in the Beanstalk' and exploring our outdoor challenge area searching for signs that Spring has arrived!
