EYFS Curriculum - from Sept' 2020

Autumn 1st 2021 

Ash and Beech Class have had a brilliant first half term settling into Reception. They have thoroughly enjoyed our topic ‘Down on the Farm.’ Our main focus this half term has been to settle the children into school life. Learning all about our three goals which are  ‘Be Kind, Be Safe and Be Responsible’. This has helped the children learn the importance of respect towards one another and their learning environment. During this half term they have practised their teamwork skills by listening sensibly to each other for opinions and never giving up to solve problems.

The children have enjoyed learning phonics by introducing each sound with a new story. They have covered all of the phase 2 sounds and have already started learning some of phase 3 sounds. The children have enjoyed learning about the stories ‘Rosie’s Walk’, ‘Little Red Hen,’ and ‘The Enormous Turnip.’ The children have had a great time innovating and retelling these stories too. 

In PSHE the children have had some whole class discussions about who is special to them and how they can be kind. They have also discussed our new school rules. In RE the children have been learning about why the word God is important to Christians. They have had class discussions about very important people and what this means to them. In Music the children have been learning to find the beat/pulse of the song as well as learning to sing Pat-a-cake and the My Name song. In addition they have also been learning songs and poems of the week.

Next half term our topic is ‘Frozen Worlds.’ The books for the topic are  Polar Bear, Polar Bear, what do you hear?, Penguins Big Adventure and Arctic Animals Non-fiction texts.
