This half term in Robins our topics are Winter, Polar Animals and People that help us.  


We will be learning about a different story each week. There will be a range of activities available for the children to explore and participate in, related to the story of the week. For example pretending to a fire fighter, police officer, baker or a polar explorer. As well as building a boat or fire engine, painting story characters or using shapes to create penguins. There will be lots of opportunities for the children to join in with the stories and retell the stories using props or as part of out role play activities. Each week a new song will be added to your child's Poetry book, related to our story of the week, for you to sing together at home. Our letters and sounds focus is Rhythm and Rhyme. 


Our stories this half term will  include:

  • Lost and Found
  • Polar Bear, Polar Bear
  • Emergency!
  • Fizz the Fire Engine
  • The Gingerbread Man
  • As well as non-fiction books about People who help us.
