EYFS

Class Teachers: Mrs Georgiou (Reception) and Mrs Gibson & Miss Whitehouse (Nursery)

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Appleby (AM) and Mrs Goodrum

This year, our teaching will take a different approach. Rather than learning about a topic across the half term, we will be exploring three different key books every half term.

Our key books this half term will be: The Rainbow Fish and Commotion in the Ocean.

We will explore the story of the Rainbow Fish, which is about a beautiful fish who finds friendship and happiness when he learns to share. We will discuss the importance of sharing and being kind to others and will make our own beautiful Rainbow Fish. Reception children will be composing and writing their own sentences to describe the Rainbow Fish.

The Commotion in the Ocean story will enable us to learn the names of different sea creatures. Children in Nursery and Reception will be using the internet to find out key facts about sea creatures that live in the sea. Nursery children will be painting sea creatures and Reception children will be writing fact files about an animal of their choice.

There will also be a key focus on Global Learning this half term. We will be exploring the life on land and life in water themes as children will learn how our wonderful oceans are being ruined by pollution, including rubbish left on the beaches, sewage and oil spills. We will look at how the plastic is harming fish and other sea life and talk about what we can do to help   reduce the amount of pollution. We will be creating a display to highlight the importance of keeping our sea plastic free and will be using recyclable materials to make our sea creatures to highlight this important message.

Our RE focus this half term is ‘Good News’. We will be recognising that we all have good news to share and will be recalling the good news of Easter for the friends of Jesus. Children will be asked to bring in examples of good news from home and will have the opportunity to share their good news during circle time. We will be talking about how it makes us feel when we have good news to share with others. We will be listening to the story of Pentecost and learning how Jesus kept his promise by sending the Holy Spirit. We will explore this special story in different creative ways such as making kites, making headpieces, doves and using the parachute to make the wind like the Holy Spirit.

As the warm weather is approaching, please ensure that your child has a sun hat in school and has sun cream applied when appropriate. Children are able to bring in labelled sun cream and staff will ensure that this is applied to your child throughout the day.
