EYFS Learning Updates

Term 5

We have had so much fun this term learning about space and our solar system. We decided to do this because an alien crash landed in our outside area! Her name was Beegu. We learnt her story and took part in lots of activities linked to the book. We also learnt lots about our solar system and our own planet. Our question of discovery was 'why does it change from light to dark every day?'

Here are some of the activities we have been up to:

Term 4

This term our question of discovery is, 'What is a fairy tale and how do we become story tellers?'

We have loved learning about different fairy tales and we even had The Three Little Pigs visit our classroom! We learnt the story to save them from The Big Bad Wolf. Through this story we took part in lots of exciting materials and learnt how to become builders. We also learnt about different materials and how they could be used and for what purposes. We had some much fun learning about different homes and using our imaginations to design our own.

We have also been learning lots about the seasonal changes into Spring!

Term 3

This term we have been so lucky to learn all about different people who help us in our community. We have had lots of special visitors who have taught us about their important job roles and taught us how to use special equipment! We have loved acting out a range of stories and thinking about what we want to be when we grow up!

Alongside this we also enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year! We had an exciting workshop and learnt how to take part in ribbon dancing and wear a real lion costume!

Term 2

We have had so much fun this term learning all about different celebrations!

Our question of discovery was, 'what is a celebration and why are they special?'

We have learnt about Autumn, Halloween, Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas!

Here are some pictures of what we have been up to!

We especially loved having The Gingerbread Man visit our classrooms and learning how to retell his story! As a thank you he gave us ingredients to bake our own gingerbread!

We also loved writing our letters to Father Christmas and posting them in a real post box!

Merry Christmas everyone and we can't wait to see you in the new year.


Term 1

EYFS have had an amazing first term at school, they have all settled into their new routines and loved exploring their new learning environments. 

Our question of discovery for this term was 'why is it good to be me?'

The children have loved learning about diversity and why it is good to be unique and different. We have learnt all about ourselves through the stories, The Colour Monster, Elmer and Rainbow Fish.

In Phonics we have learnt how to listen to sounds, make sounds with our bodies, how to hear rhyme in words and learn letter sounds which we can use to blend to read words! We have even had a go at writing letters and learning how to draw exciting patterns or draw to music.

In Mathematics we have learnt how to match and sort different objects. We have learnt how to recognise numbers 1 and 2 and match them to their value. We have also learnt how to make our own exciting repeating pattern patch works!

We had so much fun at our Elmer Craft Workshop, we made our own Elmer puppets and danced to lots of different music!
