Term 2
Term 3

This term has been another busy term for EYFS. In Literacy we have focused on our author Julia Donaldosn and have looked at Room on the Broom, Zog and the Flying Doctors, Gruffalo and Tabby McTat and Stick Man. The Children have enjoyed these stories and continued their learning through play. 

We have also covered the themes of Halloween and bonfire night this term. We decorated breadsticks to make fireworks and have made some Halloween potions in our cauldrons.

In Phonics, we have been busy learning our sounds, identifying words with the sound in and words that begin with each letter. We have now learnt all of our set 1 sounds! It is safe to say EYFS are Phonics superstars! 

In Maths, we have continued to look at our numbers. We have looked at 0,1,2,3,4 and 5. We have begun to look at one more and less and 4 sided shapes. We have been on shape hunts, number hunts and also made the numbers to 5 in many different ways!

EYFS have continued their physical development in our outdoor area regularly using our trim trail and balance beams. Also in the outdoor area Mrs Beech has had lots of help keeping the Garden free from leaves and weeds!

We want to say a massive thank you for all of your hard work this term even though it has been a different structured term you have all still worked so hard so  well done and have a lovely Christmas!

Term 1
 

This term in EYFS we have been very busy! First of all, we want to say a huge well done to all the children as they have settled in amazingly well!

We have looked at lots of different stories including; The family book, Monkey puzzle, Five minutes peace, Elmer, Elmer and the lost teddy, Brown bear brown bear what do you see? Going on a bear hunt, and Where’s my teddy? Which all the children have enjoyed and continued their learning through play.

At the start of the term we learnt all about each other and what is special about us. Then we discussed our emotions and the children have been able to retell the stories through role play where we have been able to use our bodies to move like animals in the story, we even went on a bear hunt! We weren’t scared!

We have also started learning Phonics, where we have now learnt the m, a, s, t, i, n, p, g, o, c and k!

>In Maths, we have looked at matching and sorting, comparing size, making repeating patterns and began to look at the numbers 0 and 1.

The children have explored lots of different textures and have been confidently improving their physical development in the outside area.
