Term 2

Where Will Your Wellies Take You?  That’s the theme we are exploring in EYFS this term.  During the first week of the new term our wellies took us to Redland Green where we enjoyed scuffing, stomping and shuffling through the autumn leaves.  Our wellies will also be taking us into space, a forest and anywhere else our imaginations allow!

We are continuing with our phonics teaching programme and also teaching the children how to read simple CVC (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) words using their phonic knowledge.  Please remember to practise the letter formation at home, especially those ‘curly caterpillars’.  We will be introducing and enjoying the story of ‘The Gigantic Turnip’ with a focus on story sequencing and innovation.

Our mathematics focus is exploring numbers to 20 and using number for labelling, grouping, adding and estimating.

It is that time of year that our children will be starting to learn songs for our Christmas performance with our music teacher, Mrs. Churchill. We hope you all enjoy a very full, fun and festive term!

Term 1

A very warm welcome to all the children and families who are joining our Early Years Foundation Stage classes this term. We are really looking forward to getting to know you and helping you settle into life at St. John’s.

Our main focus for this term is settling the children into their new classes and helping them to make friends and feel confident in their new routines. During the staggered entry programme, all the children will get involved in some cooking, learn their way around the EYFS classrooms, go on a trip to our local church and to our Worrall Road site and have lots of time to play.

There will also be lots of opportunities for the children to make new friends and become confident in the school routines including lunches and playtimes.

Once the children start attending full time we will be following a theme around food, with lots more opportunities to cook simple dishes and hopefully visit some more local eateries. We’ll be reading lots of favourite stories with food in, such as ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’, ‘Handa’s Surprise’ and ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. Later in the term we will be taking part in the whole school Artists’ Week.

The children will have their first forest school sessions later this term as well as weekly PE and music sessions.
