This term our topic will be ‘Who Am I?’ and each week the children will learn about a different theme:
Throughout this topic, the children will take part in a wide variety of experiences that focus on the EYFS seven areas of learning and development:
Communication and Language; Physical Development; Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the World; and Expressive Arts and Design.
Starting school can often be a daunting thought for lots of children. In the first week we will be playing lots of games, getting to know each other and making sure we feel comfortable in our new surroundings. As the weeks progress we will be learning more about one another including what makes us special, our families, and who lives at home with us.
As part of our topic, we will also be reading a selection of stories based around Who Am I?. In Phonics, the children will also be learning new sounds and they will be practising to blend the words together.
As part of our PE lessons, we will also be learning different skills and movements to play team games. Therefore please ensure that your child has their school PE kit in school every Monday.
