What Are We Learning This Term 

 Welcome to the EYFS 



Butterflies: Miss Baxter, Mrs Hullett and Mrs Weatherill

Ladybirds: Mrs Wilks and Miss Islip


What are we learning about?

In Reception this term our topic is ‘Are we there yet?’ We will be learning about types of journeys, transport and then follow the children’s interests from this. 

 This will help us to understand different types of journeys and the range of transport that we can travel on.

 Within this topic we will be learning about why people go on journeys and the places that we may visit. We will have a special visitor and learn all about aeroplanes from Mr Graves who is a pilot.  

 In Literacy we are continuing the Read, write, Inc. programme. We will also be reading a variety of stories to help improve our vocabulary and this will aid our speech and language skills. We will also continue to learn to write our names and learn to write CVC words. Some of the children will start to use Ditties to write sentences and we will encourage others to write CVC words during independent time.

 In Mathematics we are going to be focusing on reciting, counting and recognising numbers to 20, measuring weight, money, adding and take away quantities. Please remember to use Mathletics to help with them at home.


Reading Books and Library

When the children are blending they will be given a reading book to take home, please make sure you read at least three times a week. The children can also choose books from our school Library, which they can share with you at home. Please fill in the book sharing book, so we know you have read to them and then we can change the books on a Friday in the school Library.


Useful Websites 

 If you have any concerns or would like to speak to a member of staff about anything please see the member of staff on the door and they will pass on to the class teacher.

 Thank you and kind regards,
