Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception Classes) Learning Narrative – Summer Term 2021

Step into Story
In this topic, the children are immersed in the wonder of fairy tales. Each week they receive a gift from the Story Chair, a different traditional tale each week. They meet characters including Goldilocks, Little Red Riding Hood and Three Little Pigs – and even a Big Bad Wolf! The classrooms are also transformed into the wonderful settings we all know and love, a magical beanstalk, mysterious woods and curious cottages!

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.
