The Enormous Turnip

This term children have been settling into school and learning our routines. They have started to learn letter sounds in phonics.  We find a monster in the monster sound trap each day then use Teach Your Monster to Read to help us learn the sound and use actions to help us remember it. The monsters are then displayed on a jungle vine in the classroom. Children are beginning to use the sounds that they have learnt in the environment and are beginning to make their own words. Children have been learning the story of The Enormous Turnip and activities have been based around harvest and seasonal changes. They have learnt to retell the story with actions.
