What is our 'Book as a Hook'?

Our book hook for this term is ‘One Snowy Night’


We will be learning to use lots of ‘WOW WORDS’ to describe different animals (e.g. a furry rabbit or a spikey hedgehog) in our writing and will be creating our own versions of the story.

How exciting that we will become authors!

Supporting your child’s learning journey at home…How can you help?


Parents often ask us what they can do to help their child at home. One of the most valuable things you can do is to talk to your child about the learning that they have done during their time at school.


You could ask questions using our Seymour Park ‘language for learning’, such as…

*What did you learn today?

*What learning areas did you use today?

*Who helped you with your learning?

*What did you do to try your butterfly best?

*What made you wobble in your learning today?

*Were you challenged today?

In Reception…our thinking BLOOMS!


At Seymour Park, we use careful questioning to develop deeper thinking skills in our learners. Some of the key vocabulary that we will be using with your children can be seen in our display here. Starting on the yellow petal and moving clockwise around the flower to the orange petal, the vocabulary encourages increasingly deeper thinking and will feature in the challenges that your children will engage in.


This language that we use and teach the children to use, will help them to be able to talk about their learning and encourage them to think more deeply in all of their learning experiences. You could ask your children about their learning or discuss their home reading books, using some of these words to support their development at home.
