We have been learning about numbers using a programme called, 'Number blocks', the children really enjoy watching a video and then copying the activity in class.
In forest school we have been making dens for ourselves and for little wild animals, the children were very happy to know they were helping to keep the animals safe and warm through the winter.
We are now starting to put together our Nativity play, always exciting! On Tuesday 15th December we will be performing our Christmas concert/Nativity. Sadly, we are unable to invite parents to watch this year, but we will be videoing it and we will let you know where you can access it in the next few weeks.
We have been writing our letters to Father Christmas and the children were so excited, it was lovely to watch their faces as they were working on them.
Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS)
In the Foundation Stage we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). We support the children to become independent and collaborative learners. We provide a range of activities and experiences that encourage children to take risks, explore and make links between their explorations.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) applies to children from birth to the end of the Reception year.
There are seven areas of learning and development which shape educational programmes in early years settings. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. The three prime area of learning are crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.
