As magnificent mathematicians we will… Begin to represent numbers using fingers, marks on paper or picture. Select the correct numeral to write the number six. Build on our knowledge of numbers by singing counting to 10 songs and doing small whole class tasks to develop our number knowledge.
As awesome athletes we will … Develop independence in changing for PE. Discuss the rules for PE. We will begin to listen to a piece of music and develop different dance routines.

Parent Helpers Welcome! We welcome parents into school, to help our children to improve their reading skills. If you are able to spare a morning or an afternoon, on a regular basis, please let your child’s teacher know. We are very appreciative of your additional support, and it makes a huge difference to the children’s learning. We would love you to come and join us! Tea and coffee provided too! Reading Challenge Don’t forget to read for 5 minutes, 5 times a week! Your reading Challenge Slip must be returned on MONDAY MORNING so the ‘scores on the doors’ can be collated by class teachers during registration and sent to the school office. A KS1 class has never topped the leader board! We need 75% of our classes to read to meet Mrs Ashford’s challenge. Class Prizes available too. Come on EYFS let’s keep reading!
In the Autumn term we will develop our number knowledge and introduce numbers 1-10. Children need to be able to …
- Count reliably from 1-10.
- Place numbers 1-10 in order.
- Say which number is 1 more or one less than a given number (1-10).
Along with number knowledge children also need to be able to:
- Name and recognise 2d and 3d shapes.
- Describe the position of themselves using words such as ‘next to’ and ‘behind’.
- Order items based on their height, length, weight or capacity.
- Use objects to create patterns and build models.
We love singing our counting songs here are some links to some so you can sing them at home:
