We found the culprit it was Mr Harding the caretaker because he is fed up of tidying all our toys up. We have promised him we will be better at tidying up in the future.

Letter Land 

This is how we teach children to form the letters at Millbrook Primary School. 

Talk for baking

Every 6 weeks one group work with Mrs Andrew in talk for baking. They will learn how to make either cakes, biscuits, pizzas, pancakes. They will learn a verbal script of how to make the make the dish from a visual map. When they become writers they will then be able to write instructions.

Talk for writing

In reception we use a tool called talk for writing to provide the children with the skills they need to tell and write stories as they move up throughout the school. The children will learn to tell a story using a story map that we create together as a group. We will practise and practise telling the story until the children can confidently do it on their own. When they become writers they will then be able to write the story easily as the format will be secure.

Schema

Schemas, or patterns of play, are seen in many children as they are exploring their world and trying to find out how things work. We plan sessions that take into account the children's schema's to ensure the session is tailored to their learning needs.
