EYFS

Week 2 in EYFS

Another week in school is coming to a close and we hope that the children continue to be excited leaving the house each morning.  

They have continued to impress us this week and here is a quick summary of what we have been up to...

 

Our focus this week has been writing.  The children have been drawing pictures of their families and labelling them with any sounds or words they might know.  It is great that so many can recognise and write their own names already.  

 

The children have been mark making in the playground as well as at our mark making stations in the classroom.  Even though we are not yet teaching the letter formation, we are practising using pens and pencils to make patterns...

 

      

 

We have been singing the alphabet song to start hearing some of our letter names...

 

 

We have now begun our phonics learning, beginning with phase one.  We have been touring the school and the outdoor areas and listening to the environmental sounds.  To find out a bit more as to what we mean by phase 1, this website explains the different aspects succinctly - http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/phase-1.html

 

We have also been exploring numbers and patterns as well as finding out the different 2d shapes we already know.  The first couple of weeks in school is all about getting to know your children and finding out about their likes and interests so we give them a whole range of different activities to explore.

 

   

 

As our topic this term is Superheroes, we have also been getting arty and colour mixing with art in the style of Roy Lichtenstein...

 

      And of course all superheroes need a mask...

 

We hope that you all have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you all next week for more superhero shenanigans,
