Term 1

Who are you?

This term we are exploring and celebrating what makes us unique!

Our church school value this term is...



As a class, these are the things we will be thinking about in terms of friendship:

  • Why are friends important?
  • What does it mean to belong to a community of friends?
  • How can you be a good friend?
  • What should we do when we disagree?

The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37)

Week 1

This week we have been using our fine motor skills. We have made dinosaurs using playdough and even created our own secret spy codes.

Week 2

This week we used our pincer grips to save the dinosaurs from the net.

Week 3 

This week we have done lots of sorting in maths. We read the story 'The Button Box' and sorted our own box of buttons. Then we went on an autumn walk to collect different objects to sort as a class. We even explored magnets and decided which objects were magnetic and which weren't. 

Week 4

We have had another amazing week in EYFS! This week we have loved exploring our courtyard and made our own pieces of transient art inspired by the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy. 

Week 5

We had a great week exploring size and capacity in maths. We sorted loads of different objects by size and used our new vocabulary long and short. After reading 'Dear Zoo' we explored the different animals we thought could fit in different boxes. We then tested the capacities of different boxes. 

Week 6

This week we have been creating our class book in our literacy lessons. We have had great fun talking about the different things we can include and making our own pages to put into it. We painted pictures of the things we enjoy doing in school!
