Project/s:

Summer 2

Once upon a time!

 

This half term we are going to be focusing on traditional tales and exploring the similarities and differences between different stories. We will be writing short sentences about the various traditional tales we will be exploring, and the children will also have the opportunity to create their very own stories which they will be acting out as a whole class. Towards the end of the half term, the children will be going on an EYFS picnic where we will be trying out different picnic foods and having discussions around this. The children will be writing their own picnic invitations and exploring different vocabulary around this.

Books to enjoy at home:
