Early Years Foundation Stage Focus for the Term:

Personal Social Emotional Development: For the first term we are focusing on the children accessing resources and activities independently. This includes tidying up after they have completed something and caring for the things in the room. We will also be playing lots of games to help us learn about each other and develop friendships. Communication Language and Literacy: We will be reading lots of stories and talking about them, focusing on speaking and listening skills within a large group. The children will start phonics every day where they will learn to link sounds to letters and start using this skill in their writing and reading. Problem Solving Reasoning and Numeracy: We are going to be looking at numbers and working at matching amounts to numerals. In the theme of ourselves we will be measuring the size of our heads, feet and hands and displaying our findings in graphs to compare. We will also use our hand prints to measure the length of different items.

Knowledge and Understanding of the World: For the ourselves topic we will be doing lots of talking about our families and other people close to us. We will look at maps to think about where we come from and where we have been. We will also be exploring our environments using all our senses and looking closely at change that happens through the turn of the season. Physical Development: The PE topic this term will be dance and we will be focusing on how we can use different parts of our bodies to create shapes and positions, on our own and in groups. The children will be involved in lots of games and activities which we will do as a class to help them to bond and feel safe and comfortable with each other. Creative Development: The children will be looking at paintings by Picasso and talking about how he used different techniques for different features in a portrait. The children will then experiment to create their own masterpiece!
