Once upon a time, there were three classes: Sunflowers, Acorns and Pumpkins who bravely dived into the unknown world of ‘online learning’. As teachers we have been super impressed with the children attitudes towards this new style of learning. We also want to thank the parents for continuing to support the learning at home. As we continued to walk through this new style of teaching we explored under the sea and the animal kingdom celebrating the fantastic learning journey in the Spring Term. We ‘waved’ off the children celebrating their achievements on Tapestry and through our online rainbow celebration assembly to a well deserved and restful Easter break. The end.
Welcome back Reception, we hope you have had a fantastic Easter break and have been enjoying the gorgeous weather these past two and a half weeks. Are you feeling refreshed and ready for an exciting new topic. This half term we shall be learning about different traditional fairy tales. Can you think of any fairy tales? Which is your favourite and why?
This Weeks Learning:
Group Learning: In Group Learning, we shall be introducing the children to the fairy tale: The Three Little Pigs.
Who are the characters in the story? What happens in the story? The children will using a story map to help them retell the story using the key language of: once upon a time, wolf, pigs, houses and the end.
