Teaching & Learning in the Early Years

Over this academic year we will be covering the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, a distinct phase of education covering birth to the end of the Reception year. Please cut and paste or follow the link below to find out more:

www.foundationyears.org.uk/files/2012/03/Development-Matters-FINAL-PRINT-AMENDED.pdf 

Children in our EYFS unit learn through a balance of adult-led and child-initiated experiences. Young children learn best when they explore and experience things first-hand, often in playful ways. Our team are all experienced in supporting children to make the most of learning opportunities. Please be reassured we will be putting your child's emotional and physical well-being at the heart of all we do!

 

 

 

Welcome back to Term 4 in Sunflowers! :-)

 

This term our school value is 'Responsibility'.

 

The fun and learning we will cover this term will mainly focus on retelling the traditional tale of 'The Enormous Turnip'.

  

*Please remember to check Tapestry regularly to see photos and videos

of what busy learning bees your children have been!*

 

 

 

Review of Term 3 in Sunflowers...

 

This term we had a positive time learning all about our school value of 'Respect'.

We learnt how to show respect to others by being polite, our classroom by keeping it tidy and wider environment by recycling.

 

We also thoroughly enjoyed all our fantastic learning focused on our core story, the well loved tale of 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'

We have retold the story via both song and actions, supported by the author Michael Rosen himself!

Please encourage your child to retell it to you at home using the link below:

Sunflowers also created their very own bear cave in our roleplay area, as well as going on exciting welly walk bear hunts!

Whilst we didn't find any bears, we did manage to spot five wild deer in our meadow! :-)

 

Bear Hunt Story map

Check out our awesome Bear Hunt story map! :-)

Sunflowers were particularly proud of their collaborative story map, created using some amazing artwork. 

Lots of children chose to add some great descriptive vocabulary onto these images too using sticky labels.

Long wavy grass! Swishy swashy!
Deep cold river! Splash splosh!
Thick oozy mud! Squelch squerch!
Big dark forest! Stumble trip!
Swirling whirling snowstorm! Hoooo woooo!
Narrow gloomy cave! Tiptoe!

Please see the galleries below for some previous learning opportunities Sunflowers experienced during Term 2...

Come in and see all our hard work and learning on display!

Christmas has arrived in Sunflower Class - we have fairy lights galore! =D

Bye-bye Clara! :-(

Goodbye & Goodluck Clara!

Sadly Clara is leaving us for another TA job closer to home, her last day will be Friday 1st December.

We would like to say a massive THANK YOU for everything you have done in Sunflower class - we will miss you very much and would like to wish you GOOD LUCK!
