This topic has a creative and literacy and story writing focus. It teaches children how to make cards using very simple mechanisms and materials. Children will learn to write, sequence and re-tell traditional fairy tales. Children will mainly focus on the story of Cinderlla. We will learning about castles and palaces. At the end of the topic there will be a Year 1 Ball where all children will dress up as princesses and princes/knights.
We will also be learning about Winter and the change in this season through The Gruffalos Child and Stick Man which are books by our Author of the term Julia Donaldson.
