Our topics for the year 2019-2020
Term 1 - Ourselves
This half term our topic is ‘All about me’, we will spend most of this half term getting to know each other and learning the rules and routines of the classroom and school. We will begin to look at our similarities and differences and learn to celebrate diversity. Phonics will be introduced this term, using our read, write inc scheme we will learn to recognise set 1 sounds and practice our letter formation. Pencil grip will be another focus for this half term, we will practice holding our pencils correctly and having a go at lots of mark making. In Maths we will be learning to count forwards and backwards to 20, as well as matching some numerals and objects correctly.
Term 2 - Traditional tails
Term 3 - Changes
Term 4 - Stories from Around the World

Each Friday is 'Forest Friday', we share this time with our friends in reception. We have stories around the fire, bake food, make forest art and use tools to make things. We really needs our wellies on a Friday. We try and go out whatever the weather.
We will spending lots of time outside. Please bring appropriate clothing. Bring a change of clothes in case your child gets mucky.
ALSO PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD'S JUMPER HAS THEIR NAME IN!!!
We have a healthy eating policy in EYFS providing fruit and milk to the children every day. Encourage your child to drink water - it's good for you
Please ensure that packed lunches are healthy and nutritious. We have children with nut allergies, so avoid these in packed lunches
Birthdays and staying healthy
As a ‘Healthy School' , we do not celebrate children’s birthdays with sweets or lollipops. Instead children can bring in small items of stationery, stickers or donate a book to Nursery through the Birthday Book Scheme.
It could be their favourite storybook, or a book they find interesting. The book is presented in class and then shared with peers.
A special birthday plaque is put into the book to show who has donated it and why. The scheme improves our school library and our pupils’ health and teeth too.
After all, books last longer than sweets and can be enjoyed for years to come!
