Term 1 - What makes me special?
This term we will be reading lots of stories to support our listening and understanding.
We will begin our term by reading 'Flotsam' by David Wiesner as a whole school. We will then be moving on to 'Dogger' by Shirley Hughes and 'Toys in space' by Mini Grey to support our topic about Toys. In Year 1 we will be exploring these texts by predicting what we think might happen in the story, what information we can get from the pictures and text and thinking about the characters feelings.
In Reception we will be exploring the texts above however, we will also be reading 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddle. We will be discussing our own families and where we live. Another story we will be focusing on is 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llenas. This story has a main focus on feelings which we will be discussing as a class.
