Welcome to EYFS!

Rowan and Maple classes


Here is our curriculum map so that you can see what we will be learning about throughout the year.

Autumn term 1

Topic: Do you want to be friends?

Sparkling start: Tour of the school and forest area


We have all settled into school really well! We have worked very hard to remember our classroom and outside rules and have had great fun exploring our new environment. Here are some photographs of us having fun in our new classrooms and outside area.


We enjoyed our tour of the school and learning about the different places and the grown ups who help us to learn. We have been enjoying our forest sessions and playing in the brand new mud kitchen and we always keen to get outside (and get mucky!)

In our English lessons we have been learning to write our names and learn some letter sounds. We practise writing these sounds in our Read, Write, Inc Phonics sessions, which we complete daily. Ask our teachers to see our phonics books to show how hard we are working on our letter formation!

In maths, we have been learning to recognise numbers and count a number of objects accurately. Some of us went into the forest on a number hunt. Our maths activities are fun and practical, meaning that sometimes we are learning and we don't even realise!

We want all children in our school to be happy, confident learners who can use a range of strategies to improve our own learning. We are currently focussing on 'mistakes' in EYFS. We want the children to realise that we all make mistakes, as these mistakes help us to learn and improve our work. We are reminding children to be excited about mistakes, as it means they are learning something new!
