Where do we go to buy things?
This half term we are looking at the different businesses that help us in our lives. In the classroom we will set up a shop which will be linked to our new text. The children will use money to combine maths with exploratory play. Outdoors there will be a café to build on their previous skills of using the kitchen in their role play.
The children will use talk for writing to help to retain the text and to orally rehearse the story, the children will continue to engage with colourful semantics to create their sentences. We will continue blending and then will begin to work on writing simple sentences.
The children will use their sewing skills to create a wallet. They will also make a piggy bank which they can use at home to save money. We will attend the atelier to engage with our art focus which will be looking at the ‘Mr Men and Little Ms’ characters and using different media to form the characters.
This half term we will be reading ‘The Shopping Basket’ this story makes links to retaining different items in the story which we will encourage the children to write shopping list. The children will also have a shop in the classroom which they will use pennies to items from the shop.
