Our Learning Adventure
This half-term, our mini-mission in Nursery is 'Tell Me a Story'
During this mini-mission, the children will explore various traditional tales. These will include: Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, and The Three Little Pigs. We will enjoy exploring the characters and answering questions. We will act out these stories and learn to retell them. In Art and DT, we will create props and artwork related to these tales. We will also be doing some baking, learning about the season of Winter, and of course get involved in Christmas celebrations!
There will be lots of opportunities for early mark-making and developing the children's creative and imaginative skills.
Our learning so far...
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.
