‘’Goldilocks and the Three Bears’

This half term we will be reading the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ for our ‘Talk for Writing’ sessions. We will be making porridge and tasting it with different toppings. We will be role playing the story using small world characters and masks as well as in our outdoor home corner. We will be learning songs about Goldilocks and challenging ourselves to make a chair for Goldilocks that will not break. We will be learning about ‘Celebrations’ in our ‘come and see’ sessions and having our own teddy bears picnic. We will be learning about and celebrating Chinese New Year and making our own representations of the Chinese arch as well as tasting food from China.

We will be exploring and sorting hard and soft materials. We will introduce writing our surnames using our name cards and ordering to 10. We will be describing 2D shapes and begin to name 3D shapes. In PE we will be doing basketball with a coach every Friday morning. In phonics we will be reading set 1 words with 3 phonemes and writing phrases in a guided write.
