The EYFS Duck Class has 24 pupils. Mrs Vaughan is the Class Teacher and Mrs Cook is the Learning Support Assistant.
We love to explore and investigate and spend lots of our time learning through play.
Our topic this half term is ‘Storytellers.’ We are learning to tell classic stories, looking closely at Elmer, Tiger who came to Tea and Going on a Bear Hunt.
We have practiced our sentence writing, using the schools punctuation superheroes to help us remember full stops, capital letters and finger spaces. We are rewriting stories, creating lists and completing speech bubbles linked to our learning and will move on to story innovation.
In mathematics we are consolidating our addition and subtraction skills, including forming number sentences. We are also continuing to practice our number formation.
As a PE focus we have been practicing for sports day. We are also running our ‘daily mile’ when the weather allows. Our country dancing lessons are developing nicely.
We have looked closely at ICT skills and introduced Beebot programming. We are also completing games on RMeasimaths on our IPads.
As part of a home project, the children are growing a plant/flower for our foundation garden. Parents are joining us to plant them in an open week after half term.
We are keen to work in partnership with parents. Photographs of our learning will be on the children’s Tapestry pages. Please feel free to add ‘wow’ moments from home.
However, if you would like to see their learning books and art folder at any point please feel free to pop in.
Please keep an eye on the EYFS notice board which will be updated weekly with our learning outcomes for the week, ways to help at home and important dates or reminders.
