EYFS - Nursery & Reception

Welcome back to the start of a fabulous year in Early Years.  

In Disney class there is Miss Greenwood and Mrs Brooks.

In Van Gogh class there is Miss Robinson and Miss Isherwood.

In Dahl class there is Mrs Branwood and Mrs Wardle

The children will be settling into school life and they will begin to learn their class routines. They will be learning about each other and will be creating special friendships with their peers.  

For the first term Reception's topic is "Who lives in a house like this?" and Nursery's topic is "Why am I so special?"

 

Nursery.

 

We will be looking at who is in our family and drawing them.  If you have any family photos please can you send them in for us to talk about.  We promise we will look after them.

Within this topic we will be sharing Nursery rhymes every day.  Here are a few to share at home:

  • Twinkle twinkle
  • Wind the bobbin up
  • Pat a cake
  • Hickory dickory dock
  • 5 little ducks
  • 5 monkeys
  • Incy wincey spider

  

In Maths this half term, we will be focussing on counting to 10.  To help with this at home you can count objects at home and sing nursery rhymes.  Looking for numbers in the environment when you are out and about is a great way to introduce numbers to your children.  Counting when you go up and down steps is another super way.

 

Please make sure all children have a change of clothes in a bag on their peg and if they have some wellington boots they can bring them in for when we go outside. 

Please feel free to pop in at any time to speak to a member of staff.

 

Reception.

 

We will be looking at various houses and homes, and we will go for a walk around our local area. We will look at who lives in our homes and what type of houses they are, where animals live and different houses from around the world.

Within this topic we will be exploring a variety of stories and fact books which include:

  • The Three Little Pigs
  • Goldilocks and the Three Bears
  • Peace at Last
  • Whatever Next!
  • Animal Homes
  • This is the house that Jack built

 

In maths, this half term, we will be focusing on counting, recognising and ordering numbers from 0-5. To help with this at home you can count objects, actions and sing counting songs and nursery rhymes. Looking for numbers in the environment when you are out and about is a great way to introduce numbers to your children too...

It would be amazing if your child could be extended beyond 5.

Some of the learning we will be doing includes:

  • Oral counting to 5
  • Recognising and ordering numbers 0-5
  • 1:1 counting and matching numbers to quantities
  • Recognising and describing 2D shapes
  • Creating patterns and models with 2D shapes

 

Every child in Reception needs a PE kit which comprises of a white t shirt, black shorts and black pumps.

PLEASE make sure your child’s name is in ALL items of clothing to save any mixing up of coats, jumpers, shoes and PE kits etc.

Book bags: Book bags are an essential item of school uniform. Please ensure your child brings it to school every day as we try and read daily.

Please feel free to pop in at any time to speak to a member of staff.

 

Thank you
