Hello we are delighted that you have come to visit our class page where we hope to give you an insight into the fantastic range of learning that takes place through pictures and video clips and remember to check out your child's individual learning journey on tapestry.
For the first half of the Autumn term our chosen theme has been 'Minibeasts.'
The children have had the opportunity to take part in lots of fun activities around this area as they play, sing and discover more about the world around them.
Happy New Year!
Our topic for the spring term will be 'Space,' join us as we journey with your child into our solar system and beyond.
Getting Ready to Read and Write
Alongside all of our fabulous play opportunities, children access daily letters and sounds groups. These include playful activities to support and promote early phonetic development. This means that children begin to identify the similarities and differences in the sounds and words they hear. They are encouraged to listen out for different environmental sounds such as the birds 'tweeting' and planes flying in the sky. As their phonetic knowledge develops, children are exposed to a world of rhyming and alliteration. We share lots of rhyming stories and have so much fun singing rhyming songs. When children are ready, they then begin to listen out for the individual sounds that make up words and begin to learn how to represent these sounds through writing.
Children have access to a rich and varied provision to support and promote mark making and fine motor development.
We Love Maths Too!
We love to explore the mathematical concepts of shape, space and measures through lots of exciting real life experiences such as baking, water and sand play. Children are encouraged to explore the similarities and differences in the shapes and amounts that they see and find in the world around them. We have so much fun doing lots of active maths activities such as counting as we jump, hop or clap and enjoy lots of engaging small group activities to promote mathematical development as we play. We love to give children maths challenges!
