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

The children arrive to find footprints in the classroom – what has happened? Who could’ve left them?
A series of clues lead the children to the culprit, a cheeky bear!
In the following weeks we will be enjoying lots of stories about bears and doing some non-fiction research about them.
Our topic will culminate in a Teddy Bear’s Picnic, enjoyed with children, staff, parents and of course – our favourite teddies!

At White Meadows Primary we use the Read Write Inc. phonics programme from Nursery 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.
