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 Spring term we will develop our number knowledge and introduce numbers 1-20. Children need to be able to …
- Count reliably from 1-20.
- Place numbers 1-20 in order.
- Say which number is 1 more or one less than a given number (1-20).
- Begin to use vocabulary involved with adding and subtracting.
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.
- Use vocabulary related to time and money.
