Term Topics

Stick Man lives in the family tree with his stick lady Love and their stick children three, and he's heading on an epic adventure across the seasons.  Will he get back to his family in time for Christmas?

This is a lovely story told through rhyme, a gentle rhythm, well-chosen words and wonderfull illustrations.  We will be learning about the relationship of family and how they are important to us.  Seasons play a huge visual part of this book along with nature and travel.  We will be exploring these along with rhythm and rhyme, all important for progression to letters and sounds and later on to reading.



Things the children can bring in each week to help us explore this book together.

The focus for Term 2 is based around the book - Stick Man by Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler
