Our Learning Adventure
Where does snow go?
Throughout this learning adventure, we will to delve into many lines of enquiry such as:
Why is it getting colder?
What do animals do in winter?
Where have the leaves gone?
We will start with our engage activity during the first week by exploring the outdoor environment and engaging in Forest style learning activities. This also will provide many creative opportunities whilst also reading the story of Percy the Park Keeper in One Snowy Night by Nick Butterworth.
As part of our 'Understanding of the World' learning, we will learn about how animals survive during the winter months . At the end of learning adventure, we will celebrate our learning by having a cosy day inside, where we will wear our pyjamas and fluffy slippers so we can snuggle under blankets, enjoying some favourite stories with warm drinks and snacks.
At Five Spires we follow the Read Write Inc. phonics programme.
Every day the children receive dynamic and systematic teaching adapted to their current attainment.
Once we have completed our phonics journey, we then focus on developing our ability to summarise, infer and retrieve information quickly by using a range of fiction and non-fiction texts.
You can find out more information about the programme as well as access free ebooks on the Oxford Owl website.
