Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception Classes) Learning Narrative – Spring Term 2019: If You Go Down in the Woods

The children arrive to find there’s been some disruption in the classroom – what has happened? Who could’ve caused it?
A series of clues culminate in an invite to the woods, where each class will discover their culprit…
In the following weeks we will enjoy the stories of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and Goldilocks, and doing some non-fiction research on bears.
Our topic will culminate in a Teddy Bear’s Picnic, enjoyed with children, staff, parents and of course – our favourite teddies!

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.

Parents are welcome to approach class teachers to find out more about the curriculum at White Meadows. The following links give more details of the Early Years and National Curriculum.
