Each week during Numeracy we have a new focus following the scheme White Rose Maths, recently we have covered, matching, ordering numbers, repeating patterns, counting, number formation, identifying numbers and many more activities! The children have lots of fun taking part in their Numeracy lessons, they enjoy adult-led tasks as well as independent learning opportunities inside and outside in our EYFS playground.
Literacy and Phonics
This year, the whole school including Nursery are following the scheme 'Talk for Writing'. The children focus on a new book for two weeks, during that time they learn the story and retell it orally, complete story maps, learn Makaton signs, answer questions about the story, sequence the story using pictures, tell the story with props on the tuff tray and describe the characters.
Our Topics this school year are; Space, Julia Donaldson and people who help us.
We are following the phonics scheme 'Read Write Inc'. Each week, nursery children are introduced to a new sound following the scheme. They complete various activities all linking to the sound of the week.
The children really enjoy these sessions especially Freddie the frog who joins us to learn the sounds!
During the afternoon sessions we cover all aspects of the curriculum, the children enjoy many activities linked to the current topic and they take part in RE learning and Science. Nursery enjoy outdoor learning in our fantastic and well resourced outdoor area. Each week, Nursery take part in PE on a Tuesday afternoon with Onside sports. We also have a well-being Wednesday afternoon each half term, the children have taken part in baking and nature craft activities. The children also enjoy Golden Time with their friends on a Friday afternoon.
