Year R Curriculum 2020-2021
Theme Learning Plan
In Year R we use an approach to planning called PLODS (Possible Lines of Development). We start by taking the interests of the children and then think of a range of possible activities that could take place, linking them to the aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. The PLODS evolve and change over time so they are always reflective of the children interests and we add PLODS if new interests emerge. The activities will be set up in the environment to help the children achieve the next step in their learning. Take a look at how the PLODs develop as we go through the year.
Things to Help Us!
Many of the children in Monkey and Tiger Classes have been making huge leaps with their writing. We have children writing words, sentences and even stories! We have been looking at lots of different things to make us wonderful writers from adjectives to punctuation, finger spaces to editing our work. One thing we need to remember is how we should form our letters. Here are the first 6 letters that show how we write cursively. I wonder of any of the Monkeys and Tigers could show people at home their super letters?
Our Amazing Learning!
We have been learning lots about fruit! We have looked at Handa's Surprise and Handa's hen which are stories set in Kenya. We have explored fruits from the story and others that been grown in Africa. We have written our own fruity shopping list, created some helathy meals, made potions and smoothies in the sensory trays and even used the fruit to create our own shop whilst learning about money!
Look at the amazing display of all our work!
