Spring Term 1
The overarching theme for this term is “Dragons”. We will read a range of stories relating to dragons. The environment will reflect the dragon theme and will offer interesting contexts to support children’s learning, such as a noodle bar, ice exploration, dragon’s den, role play and puppet workshop. We are particularly aiming to develop imaginative play and understanding of the world, looking at the natural world and simple changes. We will also use non-fiction texts to explore Chinese New Year and Chinese culture. We hope to have a visit from the Chinese Cultural Centre to help the children with their learning. The children will have the opportunity to role play or act out stories and celebrations through role play, music and dance.
Spring Term 2
After half term the dragon theme will continue with the texts there is no such thing as a dragon and Dragon Stew. The children will be writing captions and labels. They will also be encouraged to apply their maths and literacy learning in these contexts.
