Story of the week is ‘Rosie’s Walk’. This story is excellent for encouraging children’s understanding of positional language – over, around, under, through, past and across. Use the story map below to see if your child can retell the story.
We have also used this story to build on the children’s correct use of ‘he’ and ‘she’ when speaking to describe what they can see happening in the pictures.
Through this story, we have used the Talk for Writing approach to help the children learn the story with repetitive language and memorable actions. This also includes actions for specific story telling language – such as ‘Once upon a time’, ‘first’, ‘next’, after that’ and ‘finally’. We will continue to build on this story and start to imitate and make our own version next week.
