The children are using the environment with confidence, we focus our planning on the children’s interest enabling them to play and learn. The children learn through their play and access resources linked to the 7 areas of learning;
Communication and Language
Mathematics-focused group work daily using White Rose maths
Personal, social and emotional
Literacy- phonics group work daily using the Floppy's Phonics scheme
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design- looking at artists and skills
We send ½ termly letters outlining what your child will be learning in class for each of the areas of learning.
We provide fun and stimulating activities to meet the needs of all children as every child is unique. The staff ensure that children develop positive relationships to become confident and independent learners.
This Spring half term we are reading the books: The Snowman by Raymond Briggs and the traditional tale Jack and the Beanstalk. We will be looking at Winter seasonal changes and reading non-fiction books which focus on the changes that happen in Winter.
We will be celebrating Chinese New Year (week beginning 23rd January), where the children will be looking at who celebrates it, as well as the history and story, and the the animal of the Chinese Zodiac (the rabbit).
During this have term, we will also be learning about the people who help us. These are: police, paramedics and doctors, firefighters, dentists, as well as those who help us in our school.
Our Maths will be focused on representations of numbers to 8, one more and one less, subitising (knowing how many without counting), and comparing quantities of number, length, mass, and capacity. We will also be introducing time.
The rest of our learning is play based. Children learn through their interactions with the engaging environment and welcoming staff.
