We hope you have all had a fantastic half term and you are refreshed and ready to learn. We have lots planned this term and we hope you are as excited as we are.
On this web page we will be putting lots of information about all the exciting things we will be doing in our class throughout the year.
In EYFS the children have lots of opportunities to learn and explore through play within our continually changing provision areas (indoors and outdoors). The children will learn through a mixture of adult led and child initiated learning, both of which are as equally important in a child's development.
This term we will be learning about animals under the sea, similarities and differences as well as their habitat, linked with Literacy and science where we will be reading the story of the Rainbow fish, Sharing a shell, Commotion in the Ocean. Based on these amazing stories, we will be learning how to take care of the ocean and all living creatures and we have invited important personality from the Braintree Recycle centre to have an educational chat about how we all can contribute to recycle and protect our environment.
In Phonics we will continue blending and segmenting as well as learning new diagraphs and triagraphs. In Maths we will be learning about adding, subtracting,money, doubling and halving, linked with different STEM activities like building bridges, tunnels and much more.
Opportunities are provided all across EYFS for child initiated structured free play, as well as adult directed tasks that cover all seven areas of learning.

Please ensure that your PE kit is in school everyday, just in case. You will need to ensure you have an indoor and outdoor kit available each week. You do not want to miss out! If children are wearing earrings then please ensure they are removed before these days.
