Early Years planning at Grace Mary is based on children's current interests and linked to a focus story. The focus story is chosen by looking at what children's current interests are and what areas of learning we can cover. The focus story remains as a theme for as long as the children are interested in it. Take a look below to find out what the children have been up to.
Story focus: Supertato 24/09/18
This week's story focus is Supertato, this one by far one of the children's favourite stories and the children were very excited to be revisiting the adventures of Supertato. The story focuses on Supertato who must save the vegetables in the supermarket from the evil pea with the help of the superveggies. The children had lots of fun making their own Supertato's and re-enacting the story.
Story Focus: Room on the Broom 08/10/18
This week we have chosen to explore the story Room on the Broom. The children were already very familiar with this story and love filling in the rhyming words. The story focuses on a witch who flies all over the land meeting different friends along the way and must be rescued from a fire-breathing dragon. This story has allowed the children to use a lot of imagination as they have pretended to characters from the story, casting spells and making potions!
We went for a walk in the woods to find sticks to make magic wands!
22/10/18 - Halloween Week
Since the children would not be at school for Halloween we decided to have some spooky celebrations a week early.
