Please download our termly curriculum documents here for more information about what we will are learning and to see examples of our work.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children from birth to 5. It provides the opportunity for learning and development to take place hand in hand by giving opportunities to develop in all 7 areas.
The E.Y.F.S focuses on seven areas of learning, these are;
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
- Communication and Language.
- Physical Development.
- Literacy Development.
- Expressive, Arts & Design.
- Understanding the World.
A Note to our Parents and Carers...
Your child will be sent home with a reading book each week. They will have a minimum of one individual read and one guided reading session each week in school.
How can you help your child at home?
We ask that you read with your child at home daily this will support their comprehension, language, concentration and phoneme/grapheme recognition. Above are some useful websites to aid your children in a variety of different areas. If you require any more advice or support please do not hesitate to come and speak to me.
Homework will be sent home on Friday each week and should be completed in their homework book. The children will have a Maths & Literacy activity or a fun challenge to be completed and handed in by the Wednesday of the following week.
In Reception, we use a phonics scheme '
We will learn how to apply our phonics knowledge, write for different purposes and write phonetically plausible attempts of words and sentences. The children will take part in one big write lesson per week. We will continue to practice letter formation and correct pencil grip each morning.
We will be learning to count up to 20. We will be practising careful counting, making sure that we only say one number for each object. We will practice recognising numerals and matching amounts to them. We will also be learning to describe 2D shapes and we will be learning the names of some 3D shapes too.
