This week our learning is focusing on our new book Hug.
As wonderful writers we will… Practise holding pencils correctly to enable us to form letters. Practise forming the letter ‘l’ in our cursive font. Give meanings to the marks we make. Try to hear and say the initial sounds in words and link sounds to letters to identify who lives in our house.
As magnificent mathematicians we will… Count and compare numbers by saying numeral amounts.
As awesome athletes we will … Develop independence in changing for PE. Discuss the rules for PE. Negotiate the space around us by playing team games.
As resilient readers we will… Describe main story settings, events and characters in our individual reading book and shared story. Begin to recognise familiar words in our shared ready. Identify rhyming words in our shared story. Answer questions and make predictions about what might happen next and how our characters are feeling
As computing experts we will … Operate simple equipment including our CD players, learning what each button stands for. Explore the iPads.
As great gardeners we will … Discuss how plants grow and help to tidy and maintain our Early Years garden.

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!
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:
