The EYFS Curriculum

 To begin the term we will be having a special Geography week.   We will be reading the book 'Varmints' and thinking of ways to look after our environment.

Then we will be learning about Celebrations!  We will begin by thinking about Bonfire Night and making some glittery fireworks pictures.  Then we will learn all about Remembrance Day and will be holding a minutes silence and making poppies.

On the 8th November we will be having a visit from the author of 'Goose's Cake Bake' Laura Wall and she will be reading her book and showing us how to draw Goose!  We will also be baking our own cakes to take home in celebration of this event

.

We will also be learning about Diwali, Advent, Winter and Christmas!  We are looking forward to our nativity play which helps us to learn about the Christmas story.

In letters and sounds we are beginning to learn the Phase 3 sounds and have been learning to read the tricky words: the, into, no, go, and, he, she, be, me and we.

In Mathematics we are learning how to add using numicon and we are also learning about the days of the week. We will be completing missing number problems and finding 1 more than any given number to 10.
