Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception Classes) Learning Narrative – Autumn Term 2022

Starting school is an exciting, but sometimes daunting experience for children. This is why we spend the first three weeks of The Early Years settling in. The children get to know their classroom, teachers and new friends – and the teachers get to know them! Through a variety of games, toys and group activities the children will become confident and happy learners which leads us into our first topic ‘Super Me’. 

During the first half term we focus on ‘All About Me’ and find out what the children enjoy doing, what makes them special and where they’re from. Then our topic takes a twist where we will be looking at the story of ‘Supertato’ and bringing the characters to life for the children. The Evil Pea from the story will be causing all sorts of havoc which the children will have to investigate and hopefully, put a stop to his naughty ways! We finish the topic by looking at the real life heroes all around us.

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.
