Reception into Year 1 Bridging Unit - Harry the Happy Mouse (RES241)


Harry the Happy Mouse by N.G.K and Janelle Dimmett

Based around the heart-warming story of Harry the Happy Mouse, this integrated unit supports the application of Reception to Year 1 phonics, reading and sentence construction skills.

The half termly unit is designed to include a focus on rhymes, poems and songs, followed by both a fiction unit (2-3 weeks) and a non-fiction unit (1-2 weeks).

Within the narrative unit, children will be engaged with an oral retelling of the story of Harry and his walk, making people happy along the way. (Be sure to pack your walking boots!) Children will engage in short writing opportunities, including thought and feeling bubbles, lists and thank you notes/letters, in addition to an extended retelling of the story. 

Following on from the narrative, an information sequence of work is also provided, in which children will create information posters on one of the focus animals.
