Kingfishers - Reception

Welcome to Kingfishers, our Reception class which is taught by Ms Dyet and supported by Mrs Alexander.  We have been settling into our new home in the Burrow this term, and the children have been enjoying their new learning space.  Our learning project this term is 'Once Upon a Time' .

Once Upon a Time

In the Once Upon a Time project, your child will be introduced to the wonderful world of stories. They will listen to a range of traditional tales and have the chance to act out the stories in their play. They will also listen to alternative contemporary stories to see different viewpoints from the characters. They will use the stories to think about how life has changed from when the stories were written. They will also make up their own stories and make masks, props and puppets to act out their stories.

Supporting your child at home

  • Read traditional stories and fairy tales to your child.
  • Visit your local library and choose picture books to share.
  • Talk about the characters in stories and whether they like or dislike them.
  • Talk about how the characters in stories behave and what they could do differently.
