We have had a super start to the year! The children have settled in wonderfully and are beginning to form friendships. It has made us very proud to see the children become more confident and growing in independence.
Our aim for this year is to ensure our children have a love for learning and are curious about the world around them. We are going to be exploring a range of different texts throughout the year with a key focus on Julia Donaldson (our class author!). The children will have opportunities to investigate and explore so many things… from why does ice melt to how things grow and caring for living things.
In Early Years, we are working towards children achieving a Good Level of Development by the end of Reception. We work hard to ensure we develop a child as a whole. We nurture our children to aspire to believe they can reach their full potential.
For more information about what we will be covering this year, please click on the file below to view our long term plan overview.
There are multiple websites that your child could use at home and will be using within class:
- BBC iPlayer - Numberblocks
- Early Number Sense - I See Maths
Reading in EYFS
Share books are sent home on a Friday to be returned the following Monday. These books are for you to share and enjoy together. We encouraging reading and discussing the book with questions such as “how is this character feeling?” and “what do you think will happen next?” We encourage ‘book talk’ which involves talking about the title, front cover, back cover and blurb of the book. Reception children will bring an appropriately matched phonics book home with them to read daily.
General reminders for parents
- The children will be doing PE on Monday and Friday afternoons. Please ensure your child comes into school in appropriate clothes for PE.
- Please name everything!
- We love to take our learning outside whenever possible so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for this.
- A spare change of clothes with your child’s name inside is always useful to have in school.
