'From the seeds of hard work grows a tree of success'

Welcome to EYFS

Our topic this half term is:

Can you read me a story?

During this topic we are learning about traditional fairy tales. We will learn that these stories are very old and were read by our Grandparents and Great Grandparents.

We will be exploring these possible lines of enquiry:

Fairy tale character, goodies and baddies, homes and castles. magic and fantasy, writing and telling stories.

We will have the opportunity to listen to the stories being read. We can then act out the stories using characters and other resources to bring them to life.

‘Talk for Writing’, is the time when we really think about the contents, characters, settings and language within a book. We choose books which are linked to our topic.

 The nursery will be reading

The Goldilocks and the Three bears

Reception children will be reading

Jack and the Beanstalk

Discover more about how we will teach the topic by reading our newsletter.
