Welcome to EYFS

10th Nov 2017

Welcome to the EYFS year group page.

We have had a very busy Autumn term so far...

Literacy:

  • We have have had lots of fun taking part in 'WriteDance' sessions which develop children's gross and fine motor skills.
  • We have been started learning all of our letters and the sounds they make and we have been practising writing these letters too using our beautiful cursive script. 
  • We are now starting to use these letters 'Fred talk', read and spell words. 

Maths:

  • We have been busy learning to recognise our numerals and have been enjoying using the 'Tentown' characters to find out more about them.
  • We have been doing lots of counting and finding the correct number of objects.

We are excited about sharing our Maths learning with you on Friday 1st December 2017.

 

Topic:

Our 'Once upon a time' topic has gone down really well with the children. They have enjoyed learning the stories and taking part in lots of different activities including:

  • Making and eating 'Gruffalo' crumble
  • Painting and collaging characters from the story 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear'
  • Making up our own stories based on the story 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear'
  • Going on an autumn walk and collecting materials for our Land Art 
  • Building houses for the 'Three Little Pigs' (we are wondering if the Big Bad Wolf might pay us a visit!)

We have also learned about and celebrated Bonfire night and Diwali. The children have been finding out why and how people celebrate these events.

We especially enjoyed:

  • Tasting Indian sweets
  • Making Diva lamps
  • Printing firework pictures

Have a look at our photos and see how much fun we have all had!
