Pre-Schoolers start their New Topic 'Once Upon A Time'.

Since returning for the new term, Pre-School have enjoyed exploring their new topic ‘Once upon a time’. This topic supports children to develop a love of stories and reading. It  encourages children to learn, retell and act out familiar and traditional tales including Cinderella, Goldilocks, Three Little Pigs, Billy Goats Gruff and many more. The children have been accessing age and stage appropriate activities linked to the topic and have discussed their own knowledge about royalty and traditional tales.
