Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception Classes) Learning Narrative – Autumn Term 2017: If You Go Down in the Woods

The children discover mysterious muddy paw prints. Where do they come from? Who could have left them and why? Who has been visiting our school?
Next we discover our class bear is missing! Where has he gone? Could the paw prints be a clue? Perhaps a bear hunt could help us find him?
Later… an invitation arrives for a teddy bear’s picnic – let’s dress up to meet our surprise guest!
After half term the children return and find a nest in their woodland book area. There is a baby owl nestling inside! We must find out how to look after it and keep it safe!

At White Meadows Primary we use the Read Write Inc. phonics programme across both Key Stages up to Year 3. This phonics scheme provides a systematic approach to literacy, both reading and writing, which is fun and engaging. This is supplemented with the use of phonetically decodable books from Oxford Reading Tree and the Phonic Bug schemes, along with a range of other texts. Further details on how you can support your child can be found on the Read Write Inc. website.
In addition to the above programme, we also use the Big Write and Big Maths schemes and Little Big Maths in Foundation Stage.
