Learning Topics for Spring Term 2
Our learning this term will be based around the prolific creative talent of Julia Donaldson! We will be using her books to look at character, settings, events, illustration, vocabulary development, rhyme and rhythm and alliteration to name but a few!
We will also branch off into some of Julia's settings so when we read 'The Gruffalo' for example we will have a look at woodland habitats and when reading 'The Snail and the Whale' we will explore the world of snails.
Please see our newsletters to see a more detailed breakdown of what we are learning every week.

At Westborough our children belong to a particular group for our circle times. These groups roughly correspond to the children's ages:-
In some cases the the age bands are a little bit flexible according to the stage of the child's development.
These environments have been created to give the children a small group to belong to with a teaching input designed to meet their age and stage of development.
