In the Spring Term we are following the topic 'Wake up, Shake Up'.

Through this topic we will be exploring a variety of texts, and learning activities to explore 'Routines'.

Following are some of the stories to share and Literacy ideas to do at home:

'Literacy is crucial for children to develop a life-long love of reading.  Reading consists of two dimensions: Language comprehension and word reading.  These develop when adults talk with children about the world around them and the books (stories and non-fiction) they read with them, and enjoy rhymes, poems and songs together'. - Development Matters, DfE, 2021.
