Here is an outline of the learning that will be taking place over the next half term:

Learning Experience

The children started this half term with a very exciting trip to our Woodland Camp where they discovered mysterious fairytale clues that had miraculously appeared overnight. This included magic beans, a red cape, glass slippers, bear feet, and a house made of straw! The children will now start to learn all of the skills involved in story writing, ready to plan and write their own traditional tale, with accompanying illustrations. We can’t wait to read their final stories!

HOME LEARNING TASKS (choose at least one) Please bring to school by Friday 13th July

  • Draw a picture from your favourite fairytale (3 little pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk etc).
