Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception Classes) Learning Narrative – Autumn Term 2020

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

During the first half term our focus is ‘All About Me’ and we find out what the children enjoy doing, who they are and where they’re from. Then our topic takes a twist after half term where we will be looking at the book ‘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!

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.
