Our Reading Garden

At busy time, we enjoy sharing and reading stories in 'The Reading Garden' with our teachers and friends. This year, we have looked lots of different stories including fairy tale stories, dinosaur stories and Christmas stories. We especially enjoyed reading stories about the Big Bad Wolfsurprise he is very mischievous!

The Jolly Postman

In class, we have been learning all about 'The Jolly Postman'. We read the story, sequenced the story, made a vocabulary list and then used a story map to retell the story. Click on the photographs below to see our vocab list and story map. You could ask your child to tell you the storylaugh.

In Talk 4 Writing, we use a 'Vocab List' to learn some of the words and their meanings. Click on the video below to watch some of our Reception children act out our vocab list for The Jolly Postman.
