Reception – Spring 1 – Once upon a time

During the first half of the Spring term, our topic is ‘Once upon a time…’. Children will be learning about a range of different traditional tales and nursery rhymes. Each fortnight, there will be a focus text but other texts will thread through these books in order to fully engage children in a wide range of texts.

The children will be sequencing fairy tales, making masks and puppets for the puppet theatre and doing a range of creative activities based around fairy tale stories.


Below are a range of pictures from our learning in this topic. We hope that you can ask your children to explain what they have been doing this half term using these pictures as prompts.
