Topic Planning

Autumn Term 2020 - 2020 


Our topic this term is called 'Once Upon a Time'. This topic will allow children in the EYFS to explore topics that are familiar to them on entry to school. We will explore the history of significant people, dinosaurs and read some traditional tales. Children will be introduced to a wide range of stories and begin representing these stories and their own through helicopter story sessions and through creating story maps. Talk for writing will allow children’s story telling language to develop. Children will have the opportunity to talk about and share their journey before school and how they have changed over time. Traditional tales will open up discussions on good and bad choices as children learn new routines in school. Children will learn simple maths concepts through the use of numbers and mathematical language in traditional tales. Planning will follow children’s interests on significant events from far or recent history.
