Our topic this term is...
Wow! This year really has flown by! It has been a fantastic year all round, the children have worked incredibly hard, made lots of new friends and we have shared some fantastic opportunities together, I’m not sure any of us will forget watching the chicks hatch last term. Our topic for our final half term is going to be minibeasts. This is a firm favourite with the children and we’re sure they will love learning about different types of creepy crawlies. We will be doing lots of work around some of our favourite stories; The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Snail and the Whale and Superworm.
We encourage F2 parents to visit Tapestry regularly to have a look at what your child has been learning at school and add photos and comments about what you have been learning about at home. If you need help logging on to Tapestry, please talk to Miss Tomlinson.
How children learn in the Early Years Foundation Stage
The EYFS is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years’ experience should be happy, active, exciting.
Through play and exploration, your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development. Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:
· Communication and language;
· Physical development; and
· Personal, social and emotional development.
These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:
· Understanding the world; and
· Expressive arts and design.
Maths at home
Miss Tomlinson has made a leaflet which aims to give parents ideas about the sorts of things you can do with your children to improve their confidence and attainment in Mathematics through every day, playful activities.
