Meerkats Class - Foundation Stage 1
Welcome to the Foundation Stage 1- Meerkats class! I am the class teacher, Mrs Woolley is our nursery nurse and Mrs White and Mrs Booth are our teaching assistants. In Nursery, we encourage our children to be enthusiastic and eager to learn. Our provision is highly stimulating and provides rich and imaginative experiences for all children. Each half term is linked to a child centered topic that enhances the children's development in all areas of the EYFS.
This half term’s learning will be all about ‘All about Us’. The children will be learning lots of new and exciting information about their bodies and how to stay healthy! We will also be talking about our likes, dislikes and what makes us special. We will also be celebrating Harvest festival and learning all about Autumn. We will be reading a variety of books to our topic such as Owl Babies, Funny Bones, The Rainbow Fish, The Scarecrows Wedding and Monkey Puzzle.
This half term we will be beginning to develop our herb garden and will also be growing rhubarb! We plan to make a Harvest soup and homemade bread too.
Our staff strongly believe that it is important for parents to contribute to their child’s learning and development. Follow us on Twitter @SunnyfieldsEYFS for regular updates throughout the day. We also use an app called ‘Evidence Me’ which allows you to share amazing moments that you have at home with us. We really do enjoy seeing what the children get up too and it is a vital part of your child’s journey here in Nursery and Reception.
Each half term we will be sending a topic web home with details about what the children are going to be learning and where they are in terms of their development. We will also send a home learning web that will encourage your children to engage with our topics at home as well as in school. As well as these homework tasks, we encourage you to read as much as possible with your child at home.
