EYFS Curriculum

Summer 1 2024

This half term our topic has been ‘Believe I can’.  We have been reading the story ‘Weirdo’ by Zadie Smith and Nick Laird.   We have been thinking about how the different characters have felt during the story and also what skills we have.  We have thought about how it is ok to all be different and that is what makes us unique.  This has also linked with our RE where we have looked at what is precious and special.

In maths we have been looking at numbers to 20 and beyond and how these are made up of tens and ones and how these can be represented.  We have also been ordering numbers thinking about what becomes before and after a given number.  We have also explored sharing and how we can do this equally.

We have been very lucky and had a chance to meet the school guinea pigs.  We were very careful when holding these.  Our Now Press Play sessions have been well attended and enjoyed by both the adults and the children.  Listening to audio stories is great fun and we interacted and acted out parts of the story.  If all of this was not enough we have also started balanceability sessions using the bikes.

What are we learning about this half term?
