Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception Classes) Learning Narrative – Summer Term 2023

In this topic, the children will be immersed in the wonderful world of fairy tales. We begin our journey with Hans Christian Anderson’s ‘The Ugly Duckling’ and to truly bring it to life for the children, we have our own ducklings joining us in school for two weeks! Then each fortnight we receive gifts from the Story Chair – a different traditional tale each time. We meet characters including Jack, Goldilocks, Red Riding Hood and the Three Little Pigs and even a Big Bad Wolf! The classrooms are also transformed into 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.
