Hello EYFS,

I hope that everyone is safe and well. It has been lovely to see some of your home learning again this week. Don’t forget to share any exciting activities on tapestry as we are really enjoying seeing what you are all up to.

In class 1 Darsh looked at the life cycle of a frog. Samar wrote about his favourite book, Aladdin.

In class 2 Sienna looked at sharing in maths and used pasta to help and she also learned about Florence Nightingale. Sebastian has been working hard on phonics and writing sentences he also learnt about this queen and made a fantastic crown! Emily had an action packed week making lemon meringue and lemon curd fudge for Father’s Day, played on a Scalextric for the first time and has snail races.

In class 3 Charlie went on an adventure and found a rope swing. He also wrote some beautiful sentences using the ‘ee’ sound. Harriet learnt how to ride her bike without stablisers.

Remember to keep checking the school website for any new updates on home learning on our EYFS Home Learning Page. Remember you can email us with any questions you have, we’re always here to help!

We miss you all very much.

Weekly Learning
The documents below outline the weekly learning for your year group.  Maths and English activities can be completed daily - children should be able to complete these independently.  The wider curriculum document contains curriculum based challenges which can be completed across a two week period.  

The Maths and English sections below contain optional learning resources.  These can be used if children would like to develop their learning further.  The maths activities provided by First 4 Maths involve learning about maths in a fun and creative way.  The English documents offer a range of creative writing opportunities.  

EYFS Maths:

White Rose Maths are releasing daily maths lessons during the school closure.  Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.
