Year 1 Learning Narrative – Autumn Term 2017

The children arrive back to school to find a strange egg on the school grounds. This is not an ordinary chicken egg.
What is inside the egg?
How did it get there?
Why is it here?
Following this unknown discovery, the children will learn how to look after the egg, until the day it begins to crack.

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.

Year 2 Learning Narrative – Autumn Term 2017: I Need a Hero

This term the children will be learning all about Superheroes; what it takes to be a superhero, how to be one themselves and who their superheroes are. As every hero has a story, the children will be writing their own about their superhero. Along with looking at the amazing world of Marvel, the children will also be learning about our Community Heroes. We will have visits from Police Officers, The Fire Service, Paramedics, RNLI, the RAF and the Army so that the children an meet some real life heroes!
