Morning Everyone,

There is a Government link that we feel would be useful if you would like to access it. It gives some tips of how to help your children learn at home! https://www.gov.uk/guidance/help-children-aged-2-to-4-to-learn-at-home-during-coronavirus-covid-19

Do keep posting on Tapestry, it's great to see what you have been up to!

Good morning all!

With Easter approaching I wondered if you would mind sending me a picture of an Easter egg that you have coloured in!

Twinkl has an Easter Egg template for you to print and use: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-t-5015-design-an-easter-egg-a4-worksheet  (FREE online access at the moment with code UKTWINKLHELPS when you sign up) or alternatively download straight from the 'Activity Files' section on this page just below. If you would like to design your own entirely that would also be great! 

Please upload a photo to Tapestry for me!

I look forward to seeing them all!
You will be rewarded with chocolate when we return to Nursery!
Have fun!

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum

 

The Early Years Foundation Stage is the curriculum covering children’s development form birth until the end of the Reception year. We support children to make their own play choices where practitioners join in with children’s play and observe their interests to extend learning. Children also take part in adult led activities to help develop specific skills, to provide new learning experiences and to inspire new interests. The EYFS is made up of seven areas of learning and development. These are all related to one another but divided into Prime and Specific Areas.

 

 Specific Areas: 
Personal, Social and Emotional Development


This area involves helping children to build their self-confidence and to develop a strong  sense of themselves. Children are supported to develop their social skills, to form positive relationships and respect for others. Children’s emotional well-being is nurtured by helping  them to understand and manage their own feelings and behaviour.

 Communication and Language


 This area develops children’s confidence and skills in listening, understanding,
speaking and communicating.

  Physical Development
 
This area involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and
interactive; developing their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity and to make healthy choices in relation to food

  Prime Areas:

Literacy


This area focuses on learning the skills needed for reading and writing. Through a range of contexts children explore rhymes, songs, sounds, stories and mark-making opportunities. 

  Mathematics


This area supports children to develop their understanding of numbers, calculating, shape, space and measures.

 Understanding the World

 
This area supports children to make sense of their physical world and their community. Children have opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.

 Expressive Arts and Design 


This area supports children in developing their creativity through exploring a range of materials and media to express themselves. Children are encouraged to explore and share their thinking, feelings and ideas in music, art, movement, role play and technology.   

 

Dressing and Clothing

 

We encourage children in Pre-School to develop their self-help skills. To support children’s independence with toileting, dressing and undressing they should wear clothes and shoes they can easily pull on and off. Clothes should also be comfortable and practical. It is essential to make sure your child has the correct clothes and footwear to play outside in all weathers.

 

Pre-School Checklist:

  • A set of spare clothes
  • Baby wipes
  • Nappies
  • Water bottle
  • Waterproof coat
  • Wellies (these can be left next to your child’s peg)
  • Sun hat and sun cream

 Please label your child’s clothing, wellies and water bottle.
