Year R

Our Spring Learning


This term we will be exploring the question How can we look after our planet?’ we will be reading stories, watching videos and meeting people who help look after our planet.  We will use our discovery time to learn about the effects of pollution, the benefits of recycling and helping our local community.






Run, run as fast as you can you can’t catch me

I’m the Gingerbread man!


This half term we are learning the traditional tale 'The Gingerbread Man' during our literacy lessons.  We are learning a version of this in class and we follow a story map with actions to help us. Please let your child retell you the story at home and amaze you with their story telling skills!  Lots of our activities in class will be related to the story.


We were surprised to return to school after Christmas to find a basket of goodies in our classroom plus a letter from Grandma.  We also discovered that gingerbread men have a habit of running away!

Grandma lost her gingerbread men when she opened the oven! Our hidden cameras showed us this footage of our classroom.
What a surprise. What do you think happened next?

Let’s pretend we are ‘the people who help us’...

Learning to be safe near water.

Did you know animals can help us too?

Learning about autumn and harvest

Autumn Term


Welcome to the Year R blog.  This term we will be finding out about The people who help us such as doctors, nurses, police officers, postal workers and shop assistants.  We will learn about these members of our community through discussion, role play and we hope to invite some visitors into school to tell us about their important jobs.



The Enormous Turnip


This half term we are learning to retell the tale of the enormous turnip.  


During our first lesson we discovered a very strange object in the classroom.  It was hard and about the size of a small football.  It was white and pinkish purple.  A farmer had left us a note asking Year R to help him.  He wanted to know if we thought he should grow a new crop of… turnips!  We found out a lot of people eat turnip soup in the chilly autumn days.  We thought that the farmer should grow turnips.


Then our teacher read us the story of the enormous turnip.  We are learning to become story tellers and have added some actions to the story to help us.  We have also drawn a story map to remind us what happens next.
