Once Upon a Time...



Term 1

At the table in the kitchen, there were three bowls of porridge. Goldilocks was hungry. She tasted the porridge from the first bowl. "This porridge is too hot!"! In our topic this term, ‘Once Upon a Time’, the children will be listening and responding to familiar traditional tales in order to recognise the characters and role-play the stories. As the children will be settling into school they will be getting to know the school routines, making new friends and exploring their new classrooms. The free choice activities inside and out will reflect the chosen traditional tale of the week and will develop all areas of the Early Years’ curriculum.


Literacy - Throughout literacy we will be working on our pencil control to write our names, sequence and role play our favourite traditional tales, designing houses, writing plant labels and listening to and matching words that rhyme.


Maths - During our maths sessions the children will be focussing on their counting and ordering skills. They will be sorting a variety of resources into colours and categories as well as exploring patterns.

Week 3 


The children have been really enjoying our focus story of Goldilocks and the three bear this week. Today, we received a letter from Goldilocks saying how sorry she was for what she did to the bears. She told us that she was feeling very sad and asked if we'd cheer her up with some letters and cards. The children were very enthusiastic and created lots of cards and letters for us to post to Goldilocks. What a lovely lot of kind children we have in the Wrens class! 

Week 1 

The Wren Class had a very exciting first full day at school.


They have all been played together brilliantly, sharing their toys and taking turns extremely well. They did some super counting and singing number songs at carpet time in the morning and then played an early phonics game in afternoon, which they were very good at. 🤗


Many of the children enjoyed the outside learning area during the morning as well the newly refurbished home/book area and Mrs Wayland's classroom too. It was wonderful to see them settling in so well.
