Welcome to EYFS!
Mrs Pickering, Mrs Glenn, Mrs Chiumento and Mrs Speirs-Davies would like to welcome you all to our year group page, where we will put news and information about some of the fun learning we are doing this year.
We are very lucky to have Ms Williams and Ms Dawson helping up with our learning journey this year too!
This term we will be starting our learning looking at
growing. We will be looking at a range of texts, have a
visit from zoolab, be growing our own vegetables and
even hatching some chicks.
We will be going on bug hunts and looking out for the
different signs of spring. If you have a baby book or
photographs that you could share with your child to
support their learning on growing at home that would be brilliant.
We are excited to see where the children will take us
with the topic as we respond to their interests and use
it to expand on their learning.
Our texts this term are,
Jack and the Beanstalk
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Lifecycles – Chicken
Lifecycles – Frog
Reading and writing captions and simple sentences. Applying our Phase 3 sounds and recognising them in our environment. To continue to practice blending and segmenting.
We will be learning about 3d shapes. We will be learning the different names of shapes and enjoying describing them and sorting them into groups. Enjoy seeing what different 3d shapes you can spot at home.
Later in the term we will also be learning about money. We will be looking at different coins and even having a go at running our own Hungry Caterpillar shop.
We will be focusing the Easter story. We will look at what happened on each day, how easter can be celebrated and what it means to Christians.
Church School Value
Our church school value this term is Thankfulness.
We will explore this value through our worship time together thinking about key questions such as:
- What are we thankful for?
- How can we show thankfulness?
