Mrs Chafer’s Class

Welcome to the EYFS page!

Happy new year and welcome to the Spring term in EYFS. Then children have had a very successful 1st term in school and we are looking forward to continuing their learning journey with them.

Our first half term is five and a half weeks long and the theme for the term is “Winter Wonderland” (please see the attached knowledge organiser for an overview of the learning in the foundation subjects). This theme is then broken down into 5 weekly topics;

Week 1 – New beginnings

Week 2 – Winter in our environment

Week 3 – Winter and very cold places

Week 4 – Our garden birds in Winter

Week 5 – Chinese New Year

Maths, English and Phonics will each be taught 4 times a week and will be taught through 4 whole class sessions and follow up activities in guided groups, independent groups and within the continuous provision.

The children will be taking daily exercise through play times and our outdoor provision. They will also take part in 2 PE sessions a week.

  1. Dance session with our dance specialist (Mrs Louise Jaggard)
  2. Gymnastics and apparatus sessions led by Mrs Chafer

Each week we will send home an overview of the following week’s learning for your information and so that you can support your child at home. Any homework continues to be set on a Friday and will be collected in on the following Wednesday.

Please make sure you listen to your child read regularly. If you can read with your child for 10 minutes every night this will really help your child’s progress. Please also keep practising your child’s letter sound cards and tricky words.

Don’t forget to speak to one of the staff if you have any concerns.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Chafer and Mrs Walker.
