Welcome to EYFS, which is made up of Nursery and Reception children.
We will continue to embed daily routines so that children know what happens throughout the day. The children will have lots of time to learn through play and experience learning through our topics of amazing animals and come outside. We will deliver our curriculum through a balance of adult led and child initiated activities based on the EYFS framework.
We will be sharing our experiences and discussing any interests in animals we have, talking about our pets at home, learning about where animals live. (Communication and Language)
We will talk about our relationships with others and how we can make people happy and develop good relationships. We will talk about who is important in our lives. (PSED)
There will be many opportunities for fine motor activities through cutting, weaving, threading and playdough, using paintbrushes and holding pencils. We will be learning to move in different ways on apparatus and trying to balance using different body parts. (Physical development)
